>Why won’t it rain? / Pour quoi il ne pleut pas?



The sky over the garden this morning, but still no rain.  /  Le ciel au-dessus du jardin ce matin, mais il ne pleut pas.

We’re still having to water the aubergines, peppers, lettuces and haricot beans.  /  Il faut arroser encore les aubergines, les poivrons, les salades et les haricots verts.

The olives are ripening well, though.  /  Les olives mûrissent bien, quand mème.

And the failure corner /  Et le coin des échecs


Maybe these ‘courgettes’ will do for seed!  /   Peut être ces ‘courgettes’ seront bonnes pour les semences!

  1. >Thanks to all for your comments. Yes, the overgrown courgettes could be eaten, but we have plenty of better, smaller ones. I think it's best to take the seeds out to save for next year and, as Stefaneeener suggests, give the rest to someone who keeps chickens.

  2. >One other thought: I grate and freeze the non-seeded part of large courgettes, then use them in fritatas and quick breads (think carrot cake, but with courgettes.)Ours have given up the ghost here in Portland, Oregon (USA), along with the tomatoes. We still have basil until there's a frost!
