I like courgettes, but we are struggling to eat enough of them to keep up with our harvesting. Currently we have eight in the fridge, have used six this weekend and brought back this lot yesterday. Courgette ‘Black Beauty’ are the green ones, while the yellow ones are ‘Soleil’. The yellow ones were much sweeter and more moist than the usual green ones.
The runner beans continued to crop well as you can see below. The dark ones are Scarlet Emperor and quite tasty. The lighter ones are smooth and not so nice. These were described on the packet as climbing french beans, but look almost identical to runners beans except with white flowers. They were billed as a heritage variety, but i won’t bother with them again. The other picture is of our first cucumber crop this year. Both are outside varieties and are very spiky on the outside. The yellow ones have lots of tiny spines on them (making them difficult to pick up without gloves) and we might have to peel them.
