UNBELIEVABLE

Post  bnoles on 7/10/2013, 9:53 am

I harvested this at 9:30 AM and there is that much more on the vines that will be ready by tomorrow morning.  I can't believe how much I have gotten form such a small amount of space and this is my 1ST year with SFG.  That Zuke eluded detection and got a little on the XXL size, but my wife thinks she can make Zuke/Blueberry bread out of it.

Looks like we will be busy canning Salsa and Dilly Beans.

(Could you share your wife's Blueberry Zuke bread recipe, or a link, if it's here?)

Congrats on your success! Ditto - please post your wife's recipe bounce 

My zuke plants must still be young. My first zuke failed at about 2 inches, turned yellow and died. The flower must not have taken even though I tried to manually pollinate. I have another zuke growing on that same plant. So far so good. There have been a couple of bees hanging around.

There was another post where a few of us were discussing struggles with our zukes. It now appears the roots systems on mine seem to have take and I'm getting a lot more flower shoots. The plants appear to be growing at a faster rate and the leaves are getting much bigger, so I should be getting some good zukes pretty soon....fingers crossed.
