must be beginners luck


My courgettes are growing at an enormous rate I have had to transplant them into larger pots in just over a week the leaves are like large butterfly wings. What I am going to do is make a large deep planter so when the weather decides to get a bit warmer and sunny they can be transplanted there. I would like some advice on growing courgettes so if anyone can help I would be grateful. Now back to the 50ltr compost, I tried sleeping on it but I found the hard wooden bits kept jabbing me in places I’d rather not mention but when the wife has secured a ball and chain round the ankles it makes it difficult to get comfy! oh dear!! she heard that, it looks like bread and water for another month.

I like your humour, Greenfingers....enjoy your bread and water and slink out to your pot garden and fetch yourself some veg & fruit on the sly to keep body and soul together! lol

Remember the film the day of the trifids!! then this is the only way to describe these courgettes. I am loving every bit of gardening and as a novice I'm learning every day.

Thanks for your comment
