Grow your own courgettes

Courgettes, also known as zucchini, are a summer staple in the vegetable garden. They are relatively easy to grow and can be eaten raw chopped or grated into salads, lightly steamed or roasted. Courgettes and marrows are actually the same thing - leave a courgette to mature on the plant and it will become a marrow! Modern courgette varieties have been bred to produce a lot of small, tasty fruit.
