Courgettes… Urban Farm 29/6/2014

I’ve got eight healthy looking courgette plants growing well this year. I’m growing two varieties this season. Ambassador, a good honest dark green traditional courgette and an interesting one called Tristar. Tristar produces three colours of courgette; yellow, light green and dark green. Both varieties are known as reliable heavy croppers. The first flower came out today…

I feed my courgettes on standard tomato feed, as I do with all the flowering, fruiting vegetables that I grow. The plant, buried by the plant, above, has the bottom cut out. I water many of my vegetables etc in this way as I can ensure the water/feed gets right to the roots, avoid wetting the plant and the soil will retain more moisture and be less prone to drying out via evaporation.
