Courgette triffids with yucca and hostas


Courgette triffids with yucca and hostas

This is the first time I've had yellow courgettes...and I knew that when I planted two, it was one too many! But, I had to allow for sudden death...

...but, I have to admit that I'll never plant green ones again...these are so much nicer!

They're huge!

Next year try the tennis ball sized round ones (called "Eight Ball" I think). They're superb too, and heavy cropper as well.

Lol! I know, Meanie!
I'm getting up to a dozen courgettes every other day...and I won't be able to get up the path soon!

I've grown the round green ones before - they are brilliant for the BBQ...just the right shape. I do like the texture of these yellow ones, though...maybe one of each next year!
