White, Courgettes and Tomatoes

24 Aug

I love the white in our Suffragette garden. There is no purple left as the Clematis has all been blown away but the Japanese Anemones are lovely .

I have picked all the ripe Cherry Tomatoes and ‘sun-dried’ them in the oven today.

Our lovely friend Kath, to whom this blog is dedicated, once gave me the recipe for Courgette Soup and it is very tasty. Kath and Charlie had a small house in Meyssac in Southern France and we visited a couple of times. Each time, when the villagers knew that K&C were having visitors, they were asked by the neighbours, “Which soup are you making for them?” which we all loved. We used our own courgettes (our crop has been rather small) and some from our lovely neighbour Sue’s allotment.

    We have a few cherry or cocktail tomatoes( is there a diference?) growing wild in our garden, but since the arrival of the hens I suspect they will be short lived from now on.

    When I was an apprentice hairdresser the senior stylist I worked under was called Kath.
    She told me of the time she and some friends on the spur of the moment drove to the 1970 Isle of White festival in a VW Bus.
    They got delayed and arrived there late on the Sunday. Being a fanatical Hendrix fan I was awestruck, realising she would have arrived in time to see his set. Then only person in the entire world I knew personally who would have seen Hendrix! Alas, she said they had driven most of the day and once they arrived on the island they parked the van and fell asleep and missed his performance.

    A devastating tale that has haunted me since I was 16!

      I don’t know if they are the same thing and cannot imagine tomatoes of any ilk growing wild! Here they need a lot of attention.
      Oh my! That’s some tale indeed. I can’t imagine falling asleep with a gig to be going to! 🙂

        Maybe ”wild” is not quite the right word.
        We usually throw/bury old tomatoes, and other veg in the garden and every year a few reappear. (only the cherry tomatoes)
        Those we don’t use return to the soil and so the cycle continues.

          That I understand. Sometimes we find tiny tomato plants in the ground where home-made compost has been used but we just dig them in! 🙂
