Finally A Proper Courgette!

The flowers may be pretty and the bees may like them but my courgette plant has only been producing "chiplolatas" all summer: one bite and they are gone!  But this week finally, ach ja, fantastisch ... ein BRATWURST!
This plant is actually grown from a seed I picked up at April seed swap.  Despite myriad slug and snail attacks, it's producing the goods at last!
And these handsome tomatoes will hopefully be red by Sep 18th!  Anyone else out there have some pictures of what they are growing?  DT
