Well  neck deep in green beans. Freezer full, fridge full, neighbors full. Rumor has it runner bean soup is nice so will try that. Leaving the big ones now to dry and we will try them as dried beans. Bean getting half a black bag at time. They even caused a domestic last week when i got home from work and they hadn't been frozen so I put my foot down. It didn't take me long to do them  :laugh:

That marrow is just yearning to be stuffed and baked... delicious.

 

Stuffed and baked a couple of cucumbers last week, and although nice, are not as nice as the marrow or courgette.

Sounds interesting I normally slice toms an put them inside omelette,
My 7 ex batts are laying egg a day so we had omelettes other day to use backlog of eggs up lol
Marrow probably get stuffed with mince an onion ?
Oh forgot to say my youngest 3 kids love the banty eggs poached fried or as tiny omelettes .
