I did not grown any zucchini, but a neighbor gave me a couple and I made a Zuchinni Blueberry Bread, I found online. It was fabulous!  Never baked with zuchinni before, but I will try it again.

I ate two cherry tomatoes off the vine. And hopefully you can see in this blurry pic, a tomato that's almost ready...finally! But for today, I have two beautiful little cukes. They're sweet and crunchy, I don't even peel them.

I'll bet you could sub it for shredded carrots in muffins or cake. I know it subs for mashed bananas.

I harvested a ton of Daikon Radish pods today. Question" What to do with them?

I looked for recipes on the Web and found a couple that include oil, radish pods, potatoes, and spices (turmeric, red chili powder, etc.). This mixture was cooked up in a wok frying pan.

Conclusion: 
- the potatoes tasted great
- many of the radish pods were a bit woody after cooking, especially the narrow ends
- in future, cut off both ends of the pods and use pods that are in their prime (not too young and too old)

I agree, TD, the tippy end and the base of the radish pods were too fibrous to eat.  But I did like the flavor.  Mine were unintednded UNTENDED radish squares....oh well, I almost liked them more!

Side dish of swiss chard and fresh garlic with some cherry tomatoes lightly sautéed in half and half olive oil/butter, dash of salt and plenty of fresh ground pepper.  Delicious. I would also eat this as a side dish in the morning with eggs.

Ooooo!  Thanks for the idea, LM!  I have plenty of all these things!  Never have combined them, and love the breakfast idea....I struggle with b-fast, don't like sweet stuff in the AM.

Scorpio, you're wecome.
I think pretty much all veggies go nicely with eggs.  Never thought of veggies for breakfast until I began square foot gardening.   When I make omelets, fill it with veggies, go easy on the cheese, add salsa. Mmmmm.

Nice hammock gal! It's been a busy few days so I'm just now catching up on the forums. To answer your question about how my cucumbers are doing, they're great! I'm having a tough time keeping up, haha. I've harvested about 6 or 7 so far since last week.

Here's a pic of a few I got today along with some eggplant. The picture below that one is what we had for dinner. My wife made eggplant parmesan fries to go with tacos we were having. The eggplant fries turned out great!

Hey Fiz, nice bunch of cukes you've got there, way to go and those eggplants are beauties! I didn't check the garden yesterday, because the weather was threatening all day long, and we finally had a thunderstorm and lots of rain later in the day. Well...overnight my SFG had a cucumber explosion! Two great biggies that I swear were nowhere to be seen the last time I checked. What a Face And the tomatoes continue their slow roll. I put the SFG just outside my screen porch so that I could admire the tomatoes as they ripen. And you can see from the pic below, that they're clearly visible from the porch. Very Happy 








And below is today's haul, the two big cukes, a couple of cherry toms, another Stupice, and a couple of Bloody Butchers. I can't wait for the bigger tomatoes to start turning. They're still stubbornly green. tongue

Harvested my first cucumbers and a golden zucchini today.  Then I sliced them up and ate them! I shared a little with Mrs TD as well. I love the coloring on the zucchini.

I must not read this thread when I am hungry! Good job, folks.

Fiz, I'm interested in the recipe for the eggplant Parmesan fries. Maybe post it in the Recipe section? Wink

HG ... I'm not sure why the zucchini has green ends. The photos at Baker Creek show them to be all yellow except at the stem. There are more zucchini developing on the plants so it will interesting to see what coloring they will have.

The text Johnny's has about their intentionally bicolor summer squash hybrid may be a clue to what's happening with your golden zucchini:
"NOTE: Under certain stressful situations, such as hot weather, Zephyr fruits can show some variability in the amount of green at the blossom ends. In addition, sometimes the first one or two fruits produced will be yellow with green stripes."
http://www.johnnyseeds.com/vegetables/squash/summer-squash/zephyr-f1-squash-seed-2217.html?cgid=summer-squashz

But if it ends up being all the fruits, you may have a natural green/golden zucchini hybrid - a bee could have flown farther than BC calculated and crossed the two, and some of the resulting hybrid seeds ended up in your seed packet.

After a week away we were excited to come back to a bowl full of raspberries, several cups of blueberries, three cucumbers, a few tomatoes, a small green pepper, and several peas. We also had some kale on our hamburgers, and hope to be harvesting more toms, peppers and ground cherries soon. I pulled out some garlic but it looks very small. Did I take it too soon?
