August 20th Harvest

Weeds have started to take old of the plot, only takes a couple of weeks before it can get unruly down there so a visit is in order this weekend!

Anyway this is what makes it worthwhile…..

Could not believe the size of the monster courgettes harvested this evening. First had a normal sized one about 10 inches along and usual weight of 285g.

Finally the daddy courgette dwarfing the 12 inch ruler and weighing a massive 1.862kg! Very impressed.
