Weekly Photo Challenge –  Growth

This week the theme for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is ‘growth’.  Here is my photo.  It is the Zucchini Tromboncino.  We haven’t had much luck growing regular zucchini (courgette) over the last couple of years, so we decided to give the big guy a go.

The fruit grow to over a metre in length.  We have been picking them at about 25-30cm as recommended.  We may leave one or two to grow to their full length so that we can collect the seeds for next year.  The vine has grown to such a great height already that I can no longer reach the fruit, so picking them is a job for my love.

Isn’t it handsome?  And, they taste delicious!
