Zucchini anyone?

After the week I have had, I think it is time to lighten up the blog with some funny, witty, fluffy posts.
I probably won't be able to deliver on the funny or witty. But the fluffy I will give a red hot go.

Our backyard is currently being overtaken by zucchini's. We have three different types: Dark Green, Green and light green (you didn't think I would actually know their real names did you?).

At first, the giant zucchini's were great. I would pick a small one to use with tea every night. Letting the two big ones grow until they were big enough for me to stuff.

But then, something happened.
There was rain, there was sun, there was neglect.
And then there was too many zucchini's to eat ourselves. We have given plenty away already. But there are still more!

Seeing as all the cool blogs have giveaways, I am having one too.
You don't even have to enter and hope desperately that you are going to win.
All you have to do is reply to this post and BAM! You got one.

In all seriousness. If you are reading this and want a mega zucchini, or even just a regular sized one. Let me know please. I will even deliver them too you (not if I have to catch a plane though-sorry).

PS. Did I mention that I also have tomatoes, pumpkins, broadbeans and butter beans?

This is my secret garden. So overgrown that it really is a secret.

There is actually a path through there somewhere.
