|My courgettes are growing well, but this has appeared on a few of the leaves, does anyone know what it is?|

I haven't watered much over the last week or so and it shows. The pump for the bore water has broken so I have been watering with buckets, and it is so time consuming. But I have a plan to sort it this week and I still have my fingers crossed for some rain to come. Looking forward to spending more time in the garden these coming weeks. Our busy February has finished and last week I found out that George has a place at the kindy we have had our names down for. The waitlist was huge so I was just going to keep him home with me till a spot came up. I will now have three free mornings a week........can you imagine??!!
Lettuce - nearing the end. Not sure if I'm going to replant.
The sun and white butterflies have not been kind to the following which are only just hanging in there:
Herbs - basil, parsley, flat leaf parsley and a rosemary hedge. I need to re-plant the coriander as it has been dug up by a toy truck and squashed.
Fruit trees - Peaches. Golden Queen and a white flesh variety. Both are beautifully fragrant.
Expecting to harvest/sow:
Lettuce is nearing the end.
Tiny tomatoes are starting to show.
Plenty of strawberries.
To do list:
Monthly weed and soil turning.
Large vegetable garden - currently empty but composting under layers of lawn clippings. This needs to all be turned over. I'm planning a garden path through the middle and a good layer of garden mulch put through in readiness to plant in the winter vegetables - This was on my February to do list, but it has been such a busy month I have only kept up with occasional watering and some weeding.

"The Garden Share Collective is a group of bloggers who share their vegetable patches, container gardens and the herbs they grow on their window sills. Creating a monthly community to navigate through any garden troubles and to rival in the success of a good harvest we will nurture any beginner gardener to flourish. Each month we set ourselves a few tasks to complete by the next month, this gives us a little push to getting closer to picking and harvesting. The long-term goal of the Garden Share Collective is to get more and more people gardening and growing clean food organically and sustainably."
