Ickle Courgette

So, remember how one of our tiny courgette plants started producing, and we popped it in a tub, fed it and hoped for an early courgette harvest?

More than a week later, it had barely increased in size, and the plant itself hadn't put on any growth either. It seemed the plant had a bit too much on its plate, what with growing up, settling into a new home and producing fruit at the same time, so we decided to pick the courgette and let the plant focus on growth.

But waste not want not. I still chopped it up and threw it in my pasta sauce!
