Watering always takes place either late at night when the bats come out to play or early morning whilst waiting for the coffee to brew as happened today.

Did you know that technically courgettes/zucchini are a fruit not a vegetable?
You can use them in cakes and tea breads as well as many savoury dishes.
These two plants are identical yet one bears yellow fruits and the other yellow and green.
Such a rebel!
They have both been quite prolific so I'm trying out all sorts of ways to prepare them. Fritters and casseroles are always good standbys but our favourite recipe this year is for courgette pesto pasta which makes a great BBQ side dish and the cold leftovers (if there are any) are delish.
The plum tree has plenty of fruit on it this year, I hope that the birds leave us some and don't steal all the plums, after all they've already had the cherries, raspberries and blueberries.
Soon the coffee was ready and calling me back to the kitchen, so I picked a good handful of dwarf haricots for tonight's dinner as the SP is planning on cooking pork tenderloin medallions with a Dijon mushroom sauce, c'est magnifique!
