Today's Important Message

We've been a bit light on the veg related information lately, so I thought it'd be a good idea to show you this most important video I've found on the care of marrows.

Unfortunately the website quoted at the end of the video doesn't seem to exist anymore, so you I'll direct you to this one instead.
Have a good Easter everyone :)


  1. Brilliant! I've got to get me one of those slug repellers.

  2. No wonder Mike the cameraman kept cackling!

  3. OMG, too funny! Thanks, I needed that.

  4. Fabulous! But how on earth did he manage to grow such a large, scrabble-playing marrow? And more to the point, how did he manage to lift it without doing himself a mischief?

  5. Fantastically gorgeous comic relief, after a perfectly miserable day - steady rain having made gardening impossible. Thank you for making my day!

    Henceforward, I shall consider courgettes to be hopelessly inadequate.

  6. I love the slug repellant but shock ----- I HATE marrows and I mean really hate them.

  7. very funny, must find my golf club.

  8. & here i was thinking that a heavy tire iron did i am to hunt up a golf club! ;)

  9. it is hillarious!!! I love it! who is the guy?

  10. I've never heard of marrow before except when you're speaking of bone marrow... I'd like to be able to grow a plant that plays board games with me!
