Cobb Pasta Salad; Clandestine garden goings-on — 13 Comments

  1. I am rather smitten with your half-yellow, half-green courgettes! Thank you for your submission to PPN!

  2. I love the look of the bi-coloured courgette. If I thought it were possible to reproduce that here in my garden attended by black-thumbed me, I’d give it a shot. But discretion being the better part of valour, I will just stand aside to admire. (It pains me to say that I’ve somehow managed to murder the mint again this summer. I don’t know WHAT I’m doing wrong. Nobody can kill mint!!)

  3. The salad looks absolutely fantastic, especially since the heat wave (much to the weatherpeople say the opposite) is still here with a vengence. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.
    As for your lusty plants knowing no prejudices, perhaps you could patent (or whatever the gardening version is) the seeds and we’ll call the two toned zucchini – Katini!

  4. Hi! Its a very refreshing recipe for this warm summer in Spain! Thank you for sharing!!
    I planted this year for the first time yellow zucchini and I also have green ones! This weekend I will check if it is happening the same clandestine phenomenon in my vegetable garden 🙂

  5. Pam, I rather like them, myself – sort of flamboyant, devil-may-care courgette.
    Janet, you’re welcome ;-))
    Zoomie, certainly more interesting.
    Ina, love pasta salads of all types!
    Tanna, mutts rule!
    Christine, I’m going to sneek out there some night
    Elizabeth, you shouldn’t refer to yourself as nobody…. really….. And how on earth can you kill mint? I’ve even tried Round-up in a moment of desperation….. to no avail.
    Val, they’re all coming out bi-colored now. They purity is ruined!
    Ruth, the seeds would be far too prone to misbehave, I’m afraid
    La Cocina, it’s the green one that causes all the problems ;-))

  6. Hmmm. Someone is DEFINITELY getting frisky in the garden.
    It’s kind of fun though! Almost like you’ve got your own Mendelian genetics experiment going on.

  7. Joanne, good thing this is France – there are no Morals Police. They would arrest me for any GM foods, though. Mother Nature can play – but don’t play with Mother Nature!
