You may recall from my previous post that my baby courgettes just turned yellow, withered then died.
I asked various people for advice and the common consensus was the courgettes either did not have enough nutrients from the soil, or the flowers were not being pollinated.
I duly fed the plants with a tomato feed and every morning armed with a small paint brush I hand pollinated the flowers. Mother nature is wonderful – but sometimes she just needs a helping hand…
I picked my first courgette last Saturday.
I am also pleased to report there are many more healthy baby courgettes which should be ready to eat in the next week or so. I will just have to find lots of different courgette recipes. Any suggestions please?
