marrows and courgettes

2 marrows and 2 'courgettes'... and there's more where that came from!

OK. Here’s a lesson learned. When, as an allotment newbie, someone tells you probably don’t need 3 marrow plants (1 will do) believe them. You should listen particularly carefully if there’s just the 2 of you planning to eat them. Last week we managed to eat a whole marrow. This week it looks like we’re facing around 7. That’s a marrow a day. Even if we were to make 2 lots of chutney and a stuffed marrow, that leaves around 4 marrows… and then there’s the marrow sized courgettes…
