Did you see the News today? Apparently its snowing in Spain so courgettes in British shops are £2 a lb. Courgettes in January????
For goodness sake Britain. Grow your own all summer, you will get so many and then you will be glad not to see another courgette till next June!!
I was doubly amused by the guest/commentator at lunch time who suggested people could buy some green in the form of a nice savoy cabbage from Lincolnshire instead. The BBC reporter got all sniffy and cut her out of the conversation from that point on. Obviously savoy cabbages are not as topical or interesting as courgettes.
Personally our "green" consists of sprouts, kale and spring cabbage harvested as needed from the garden or runner beans from the freezer. I will confess to a packet of frozen peas on stand by. Courgette seeds arrived in post yesterday and are ready and waiting.
