Anyone for courgette?

If you’ve been following my greenhouse saga, you will have watched my high hopes dash against the rocks earlier this week, when the wind spectacularly damaged it!

The rescued egg cartons were brought inside in what I thought might be a vain hope that something good would come of them, and here I am on Good Friday with what can only be described as a feeling of elation.

Happy Easter everyone πŸ™‚


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. Great news, Helen……you might find more hopefully πŸ™‚

    • Helen says:

      Yes! I had noticed this seed coming to life under the compost last week, before the demise of the greenhouse, and no doubt it is enjoying the warmer environment inside!

  2. I expect it two have two sturdy leaves by Easter Sunday!

    That’s the amazing thing though – they do so much of it themselves!

    • Helen says:

      I was listening to a programme on the radio about a related issue earlier and it is truly amazing how things grow without a master to make them do it.

      Anyway, another courgette has come through today and two pumpkin seeds I left in a tray outside because I thought they were gonners have started to root!
