Santa’s surprise for Piglet

Firstly, a belated happy New Year to my followers and a big thank you for all your comments and support during 2012.

I’ve just returned from a family Christmas and New Year in England to discover Santa and his little Elves have left me a wonderful surprise in my absence!

For those who have followed Piglet’s zucchini tales of woe over the last year you will understand my excitement. (Don’t worry I’m easily pleased!)

In desperation, and determined to have one last try, I planted one Zucchini “plug” in a pot at the end of August. Initially (as expected) all the baby Zucchini withered and died. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered this…

I did not realise they even grew outside in Portugal during December!

So the Moral of this story is: we should never give up and if at first we don’t succeed just keep on trying!
