Saturday I was surprised to discover that our zucchini plant is producing. I don't think the garden got enough water this year—the tomatoes are dying, the cucumber plant is puny, and the only things really doing well are the herbs. But off in the mulch pile a few months ago, I planted a few zucchini seeds and hoped for the best.
I've gone out to check the plant every other day this week and each time have been surprised by the size of the zucchini. I'm trying to pick them small, but some of them have gone from nothing to too big in just two days!
So far we've added it to pizza, spaghetti sauce, pad thai, this curry, and a vegetable soup. That's zucchini every night since Saturday! And there are three more waiting for me in the fridge (one of which may have to go into a batch of these).
So far I haven't frozen any, but I don't know how long I can keep this up. Ideas?
