I am having a fight with slugs and snails at the moment! Since having my new greenhouse and moving the courgettes inside, I think the pests have followed them in!!!!
Not sure what to do now though as this one seems to be going yellow at the end but is still small..... Do I harvest now or leave it to grow more? or... will this do more harm than good?
