So lovely to pick my first courgettes of the year – the start of several months of picking. These in the picture are Jemmer, a yellow courgette that I grow every year along with some green ones such as Defender. The yellow courgettes are easier to pick – the colour stands out, so there’s less chance of missing the odd one and ending up with marrows by accident! I also had my first picking of Mange Tout peas last night, which I ate in a stir-fry with the courgettes. Summer eating!
