Courgettes day 10


I'm growing courgettes (zucchini) in our back garden. I planted the seeds on 9th May. (Edit: Actually it was the 16th.) Saturday was the first day I noticed shoots. They've got a bit bigger since then.

Any tips for growing courgettes? They're getting plenty of water at the moment because it keeps on raining.

Keep the slugs away (easier said than done)

A grow-bag.

Yeah, I wondered about anti-slug measures. I might try crumbled egg shell round them, see if that makes a difference.
