NOTE TO SELF...

Post  audrey.jeanne.roberts on 5/24/2014, 2:27 pm

When harvesting produce:


We found a 4 pound zucchini behind a plant I check daily, along with 1 1/3 lb. and 1 1/8 lb zuccs!!!

I'm thinking the big boy is going to be slab sliced to make gluten free lasagna!

Reminds me of the 6.5 lb. monster zucchini I grew last year!

6.5 lb Zucchini?!!!  That's not a veggie it's a club you can use for a weapon!

We'll see if I can grow something similar this year, having started my squash from seed.

Fortunately, my neighborhood is pretty safe....  Maybe a baseball bat?

I don't think I'll have this problem, since I'm one of the few people in our town and the only person in our neighborhood who can't grow zucchini.

My zucchini was a bust last year and I bought some HUGE ones for 50 cents each to make bread with. Found a recipe online for making "apple" pie with them. Boy oh boy was it yummy and I had to really convince my guests that it was zucchini pie. I made a really mean "apple" crisp out of them too. I'm trying zucchini again this year and if it does well I'll hope for some big ones.
