Every day I have cause to say to my feathered friends: thank you, ladies.

I'm also feeling thankful for the power of compost at the moment. Check out these photos of our two zucchini plants. The top one is growing next to a compost bin. The bottom one isn't.

I didn't move my feet when I took the photos, or lean towards or away from the plants. I just turned the camera to the right for the first one, and to the left for the second. The difference in size really is that huge! I grew both plants from the same seed packet, and they were the same size on the day I planted them out. Strangely, though, the big one has variegated leaves.
