After an abscence I am back with a query. Last summer in the UK I grew two varieties of Courgettes, Tondo and Fiorentina, because of the glut I decided to preserve them in OLive Oil.

In yesterdays Telegraph there was the following article about gardens around Trasimeno. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tr
After a somewhat chaotic winter and no appearnces on the forum I have returned.
I saw this last weekend and thought it might be usefulDealing with an Italian traffic fine - Honest J
Listen to on line Italian radio while you are on the computer. I found that the most difficult thing is to understand what is being said to me. I can prepare wonderful comments - all of which are totally useless in the face of understanding the spoken word. Hope this helps
The hole in the bottom of the euro sink is bigger than the hole in the bottom of the sterling sink - at the moment. Just beware that Oil is priced in dollars!!
Welcome to the forum, hope you make plenty of use of all the expertise there is. Just one question, what's your spoken Italian like? Brian
I'll have to have some of them creeping up my trellis!!!!
I grew my plants, Tondo, Fiorentina and Custard White, on an allotment so the toxin could have come from anywhere. Next time I grow Zucchini I shall try just one variety in case it came from one of the other varieties. Custand White is the most amazing looking zucchini - reminiscent of a space ship!!!
Thank you for that, the link was there as I wrote my post because I checked it. Still all's well etc. I do have the individual websites and phone numbers if anyone still has difficulty in geting hold of the info. All the gardens are fairly close to Lake Trasimeno.
Umbria - around lago del Trasimeno, we have had a numbe of holidays in the area and are hooked!!
Many thanks Gala, my apologies for the wrong spelling of the wrong language. I cannot recall that those zucchini I ate last year were particularly bitter, as I said it is only a suggestion of taste but it is so unexpected but not unpleasant as we are eagerly chomping through them.
Whilst this posting has nothing to do with Italy it still sticks in my mind. Nine years ago I was flying from Jomosom, on the Nepalese/Tibetan border to Kathmandhu. I had been trekking for 6 weeks and had a Swiss Army knife in my bag for the hold. There was a thorough examination of ALL bags and my knife was removed as a hazard, even though it was destined for the hold, as I walked out of the check in room and out on to the runway area my knife was courteously returned to me to carry on the plane!!!!!
