I only planted two zucchini seedlings this spring. I’ve never grown zucchini before, but have heard the horror stories about too much zucchini. While taking advantage of the three-day holiday weekend to weed and photograph the garden, I took shots of the giant zucchini blossoms on those two plants that no longer resemble “seedlings” in any sense.
That’s when I discovered two giant zucchinis — each at least 14 inches long — hidden at the base of the plants. Guess we’ll be marinating and grilling, battering and deep frying, or baking zucchini (in bread, most likely) this weekend.
