You've seen my (first ever) Hallowe'en Pumpkin.
Now, please put your hands together for my Hallowe'en Courgette!
We grow courgettes in our back garden most years and usually choose the spherical yellow ones, just because they're a bit different.
This little guy, though much smaller than most carving pumpkins, was a little long in the tooth for eating, so Pete suggested I might like to carve him à la pumpkin!
To my surprise, he was much tougher to carve than the pumpkin – his skin was really hard to pierce and saw through. So I'm glad I went for a simple design (which I chose because of his small size).
What do you think? Will it catch on? :)
