I grew some ratatouille!

tags: , , ,

I can’t decide whether I first rescued this courgette from:

  • a potential slug attack, or
  • early onset obescity

CourgetteI slipped a seed into the sod last April. This chunky hunk has been brewing ever since

Now, don’t you think it’s a very pleasing size, shape, and colour? It’s also quite firm and smells very like ‘vegetable’, not at all like ‘book’

Ratatouille here we come!

4 bits of lovely banter on “I grew some ratatouille!”

    There is a surprising amount of sexuality in this post. I might even go so far as to say it’s borderline pornographic. “I slipped a seed into the sod last April. ” Could be Jilly Cooper writing.

    Nice … I look forward to hearing how it tastes in ratatouille form! As ratatouille goes, though, it may be a little light on the tomato front…

    I had steak, chips and salad last night – quite tasty, in fact, though not remotely home-grown. My mother’s home-made ratatouille is very nice – though apart from having used a bit of one of my chills once or twice for spice, all shop-bought ingredients.

    What a whopper!

    Vegetables, another Wendy House talent. If that were mine, I’d make my veggie lasagne with it.

    I’ve never read any Jilly Cooper, but she’s a famous writer so I’m geussing that’s a flattering comparison, thanks ExpatEgghead!
    James, mum supplied some tomatoes from her green-house, I’ll have to consider adding them to my nascent crop and home-growing skills for next year…
    Bux, Lasagne is on my list for the next courgetter
