Just a quick post today to show what vegetarian delights I have been munching on, as I am going away for the weekend. I am very excited as it's my friend's hen weekend and I don't need to worry as all of of meals will be catered for us, and she is a strict vegetarian! Photos will be shared when I am back!
This meal was heavenly: pea and mint salad with mixed leaves, topped with stuffed courgette flowers and a side of mash!
I grew some courgettes last year in the hope that I would end up with some flowers too. It was a partial success, but I would say if you are going to try it for yourself, the bigger the space, the larger the crop will be. (Pretty obvious really, but some plants can yield lots of fruit in a smaller space.) Also when you pick the flowers, you need to check which ones are male and which ones are female, and ensure that you leave at least one of each so that the bees can continue to do their great pollination work. This is something I did not realise and so I only had two small crops!
