      Wow! That's almost a field. Congratulations. Yes I can well appreciate that it is difficult to see where to put your feet to get to the courgettes. Impressive. That yellow one above is getting huge (unless it has particularly small leaves)

      yes the leaves are small. I'll retake the photo tomorrow with my hand under it to show how big it is.

      A round courgette type by the looks of it. A cucurbita pepo, not a cucurbita maxima winter squash I think.

      That's an interesting variety. Like a massive green olive.

      They need a bit more warmth, it's the perfect year for them. Unusual flowers.

    It's about a foot long now and growing fast. I'll take a photo tomorrow to show plus loads more getting bigger.

              No I have too many of other courgettes. Gave it to a friend she actually needed it more for her health. I'll wait for the others loads more coming now.
