Happy Solstice!

Yesterday we harvested the first scallop squash, a courgette, a red onion, and had a wonderful garden Pizza. I was congratulating myself that we were ahead of the game compared to last year, as we had no courgettes last year worth speaking of - maybe one or two squash in September.

Last night the wind picked up, accompanied by torrential rain, and today, I'm left wondering if the first courgette will also be the last. I planted out quite a bit yesterday morning, the wind is inclined to catch the big leaves, and if they are not well rooted in, wreak havoc with the lower stem. Fingers crossed I'll still have some courgettes when the sun comes back out...
