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.
