Courgettes and cucumbers, with 1 weeks worth of growing time from flowering. The average is about 50g weight per fruit, with courgettes making about 8 fruits each plant, and cucumbers making about 0.8 fruits per plant. The cucumber plants had way higher survivability than the courgettes, and they taste nicer, but they are (so far) only 10% as productive as courgette plants.

I don’t think there’s something quite like digging for potatoes. Especially when it’s the first time of the season.

First proper cucumber and courgette haul of the year 🙂 I have kept them as a modest size as I am noticing signs of blossom end rot, and I’d rather not risk leaving them out in the open too long. Including the ones we’ve been snacking on up at the plot, that’s a good 12 cucumbers and about 50 baby courgettes, hopefully every week (maybe every other week), from about 8 courgette plants and about 16 cucumber plants.

Gherkins, carrots, onions, beets and fennel. Not pictured here: broccoli, globe zucchini, flowers and a huge bowl of raspberries. Nothing beats doing groceries in your own garden.
