#Carrotranch Flash Fiction Challenge – Harvest

This week Charli Mills over at Carrot Ranch Literary Community has given us the topic of harvest for the 99-word challenge. You can join in the fun here: https://carrotranch.com/2017/09/22/september-21-flash-fiction-challenge-2/


To much of a good thing

Father had always been very keen on growing vegetables. When Sophia’s family moved to a plot in the country he got his chance. He spend many a day ploughing two huge fields and then planting them. The rains came timeously and the plants grew, first bearing lovely yellow flowers and then the first tiny courgettes could be seen. More and more courgettes appeared on the seemingly hundreds of plants Father had planted. When harvest time came the whole family helped to pick these long, green vegetables. There were courgettes everywhere. The workshops were full, as were both bath tubs.

  1. Yay…. zucchinis… when I had acupuncture treatment, the acupuncturist took a holistic approach and recommended that I ate more of the cool food because, at the time, I ate more of the hot food. The idea is equivalent to alkaline to acidic food. Zucchinis are in the alkaline group so I ate zucchinis always every day. It turned out to soothe my stomach.
    Very nice post. I don’t mind having too much of a good thing when it comes to zucchinis!


  2. How narrow minded of me — I thought Zucchini Season was only a problem in the US! Good to know they fill the bathtubs (and neighbors’ stoops) of the world! My favorite is to make zucchini chocolate cake. And thank you for expanding my vocabulary!
