Allotment Week, Zucchini Flowers and A Poem

Today is the last day of National Allotment Week and every day this week we have eaten from the allotment – broad beans, runner beans, golden beans, purple dwarf beans, courgettes, patty pan squash, tomatoes and a chilli.

I keep hoping that there will be more than one Courgette flower so that I can play with stuffing them! Although, as Shirley Conran once said, “Life’s too short to stuff a mushroom,” so maybe it’s too short to stuff a courgette flower! Β They are pretty though.

Nothing Gold Can Stay
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost
