We had an explosion of zucchini in our garden this year. I am sure I only planted one plant this year, but somehow I have two. I only noticed one and have been pretty good about keeping the zucchini picked while they are still young and small. The other day, I pushed the corn stalks aside to see what I thought was another type of squash (I don't keep very good notes about what I plant where) and found another zucchini plant. This one wasn't as mature as the other one, so there weren't any baseball bat sized squash on there, but some were close.
Now any of you who grow zucchini know how hard it is to give the stuff away. My dad came over today to get a scrap piece of fleece to use as a visual aid for a talk. I told him he could have the fleece only if he would take a zucchini. He said he would love some, but wanted to pick it up later since he was on his way to town. He didn't want to wreck the stuff by having it sit in a hot vehicle all day. I think he forgot that zucchini is indestructible. Meanwhile, it is still sitting on my kitchen counter. How gullible am I? I think I may have do to a zucchini drop and run. He'll never know it was me, right?
