I really wanted to call this post My Big Fat Zucchini and If You Want it to Rain Have an Outdoor Party, but really, if I set that sort of precedent, who knows the lengths my post titles will eventually reach?
Possibly much like my sentences - way too long.So yes, it has rained, and not because I washed the car or left my washing on the line, oh no, that wasn't quite enough. What I had to do was to throw a party - you know the kind, the kind where you all sit around outside so as to enjoy the great outdoors. Until it starts sprinkling just that little too hard. Possibly not hard enough to penetrate the soil to any great depth, but most certainly enough to drive everyone upstairs.
Call me the Rain Party God.
Anyway, back to matters more vegetal.
I have zucchini. Or indeed courgette, if you prefer. And this is my Biggest Zucchini Ever.
Finally, after fussing over the plants for months, I have cracked a size larger than my little finger. How did I do it?
I stopped fussing and left them alone.
The Zucchini Rain Party God I am thinking.
