What's Growing in the Garden?

All this hot weather is good for growing Zucchinis!
Or are they Marrows? Wait, I just thought of a joke-

When does a Zucchini become a Marrow? If you don’t pick them; until toMarrow.
It has been exciting to see things growing in our new garden.  The peas have been popular because they are delicious.  There are some beans too and of course these Zucchinis/Marrows.

What shall we do with them?  Leave a comment with your suggestions.

  1. This recipe from the recent 'Good' magazine makes a yummy dip or spread:

    Roast Zucchinin and Almond Spread
    2 large zucchini sliced lengthways (I used half a large marrow with the very soft pulp scraped out)
    Olive oil to drizzle
    1/2 cup raw almonds
    1 garlic clove
    1 sprig fresh thyme
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    salt to taste

    Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
    Put zucchini on an oiled oven dish or tray. Sprinkle with salt. Roast for 20 minutes. Allow to cool.

    Place almonds, garlic in a blender and whiz until chopped to fine crumble. Add cooked zucchini, thyme, olive oil and a pinch of salt. Blend to a smooth paste. Chill.
