Mr, being one to share our success was down the street talking to somebody telling them how the vegie patch is going. They were an avid gardener too but also knew of a gentleman who has his own vegie patch in his front garden and what he can't eat he puts in a box out the front of his house and with a sign that invites you to help yourself.
Mr came home with a few surprises, a yellow squash and a green and yellow zucchini (which he couldn't wait to cook up - check out the photo he had chopped the zucchini before I got a happy snap!). He couldn't believe how big they were.
the squash and the chopped zucchiniNow Mr is carrying around one of his basil plants (it's legendary - survives in the blue mountains with frost!) when he goes to work, in case he passes by again and sees the guy to say thank you for his generousity and obviously find out how he got his squash so big!
