    Blight Watch 2017

    It does seem very early indeed. Fortunately my outdoor tomatoes are not yet outside and my usual crop of spuds is now reduced to just 6 seeds in the compost heap, so much less to worry about!!

    Only tried them once and then I grew them in the greenhouse, so not tried them outside. I think they like it warm so it might be a bit early.

    The difference between Cucumbers,Marrows and Courgettes

    Marrows and courgettes, as far as I know, are basically the same plant, it's mainly about variety. Cues are different and very easy to distinguish from marrows, as Scrungee points out.
