Just picked 1.7kg of scallopini! They look like weird hairy flying saucers. They may end up on the barbecue tonight – have to find something to do with them, and quick! There’s more appearing as I write.
Scallopini wouldn’t be my first choice – the packet of mixed courgette seeds seemed to be only this type. This may be the only time I grow them.

Later on… I keep running out of space to plant new stuff and have been sitting on a whole lot of lettuce seedlings for a while, which were looking periodically sad in their little pots. So this afternoon I cut some more grass out in front of the fence tomatoes, built a mini-retaining wall out of bricks and back filled it with compost, which was enough space to plant the rest of the seedlings (Koanga‘s ‘Heritage Mix’) and the rest of the basil. Hopefully they’ll be happier now.
