Taste, Sight and Smell

17 Aug

We are picking courgettes from the allotment every day and having made them into soup (velvety and green) had them fried with lemon zest, today I made Courgette Fritters and we had them with some fried Halloumi – very tasty, especially served with some of the Cherry tomatoes we were given yesterday. .

The Cosmos are gone but the Verbena and Poppies make a lovely bee friendly border that is easy on the eyes.

I just wish I could bottle the perfume of the Night Scented Stock at the end of that border. It is so lovely to catch the scent on the breeze when we go down to water the Lottie in the evenings.

    You pickle Zucchini aka Courgette? I like mine small, here however, the old guys tend to grower them to monster size.
    I don’t know Halloumi at all. Have you ever grown yellow tomatoes or been given them, be it small, medium or large?
    Are the flowers edible, they look like they should be, but atlas they probably not.

      neither of us is fond of pickles so no, I haven’t tried that. We cut our courgettes quite small too – they are tastier like that and not full of seeds. The flowers are edible and I once ate Stuffed Courgette Flowers at a fancy restaurant in Arizona!
      Halloumi is a salty and very delicious cheese that doesn’t melt all over the place but keeps its shape.
      We haven’t grown yellow tomatoes but quite fancy trying different varieties next year. 🙂
