Best Courgettes Yet 2012

Posted on February 1, 2013 at 11:49 0 Comments

Another unfinished blog I never got around to completing, last year I had a great crop of Courgettes and these were two of the best ones from each variety. Starting with my round variety called 'Tondo di Piacenza', and then my long variety called 'All Green Bush'; they look and tasted gorgeous.

Sadly I have no garden or balcony at the moment, so I will miss growing these this year.…


Weekend Harvest - Sept 2012

Posted on February 1, 2013 at 11:48 0 Comments

These have…


The Little Balcony 2013

Posted on January 10, 2013 at 15:01 0 Comments

As you all may know, late last year, around October time, The Little Balcony was dismantled and taken apart, due to our recent move and since then, and luckily for me, there wasn't really much I could do anyway in the way of gardening, as winter was also setting in for the year.

The new year has now come around and normally around this time of the year I'd start prepping for this year growing session, which I really enjoy doing, I can't normally wait to get all the seeds out and…
