Your ideas may be amusing rather than practical but remember children read our blog!!

    Puree one raw courgette with one clove of garlic and two sticks of chalk. Wrap up in muslin and use as a poultice to cure boils

    Courgette idea no.1

    Get an overgrown courgette and slice off one end and scoop out the inside as best you can. Now use the hollowed out courgette as a place to keep your valubles; rings, cameras, passports, etc. and keep it inside the fridge. No burgler would even think to look inside a courgette.

  4. Try substituting courgettes for oranges in the well known family game 'Oranges and Polo Mints'
