Zucchini gone mad!!

I planted 8 zucchini plants this year - 6 green and 2 yellow.
These plants have been giving me fruit for weeks.
The heat and drought didn't bother them in the slightest.
When I got tired of eating zucchini I started giving them away.
I've made stuffed zucchini, stir-fried zucchini, zucchini bread, zucchini muffins, baked zucchini. 
On Saturday, I had 37 left over zucchini on my kitchen island.
I put 10 in a bag and left them on a friends porch
I put 10 in a bag for my sister
I sent 5 home with the delivery man
3 home with the tow truck driver
8 were given away separately to friends
That left 1 zucchini on my island for me.
I thought that was the end of the zucchini.
The heat and lack of water finally slowed them down.
Then, we had rain.
Monday I picked 8 zucchini.
Today I picked 12 more.
Zucchini anyone?


  1. Netty, I guess the zucchini have gone on a rampage, wow, you have a crop there! My sister-in-law makes an amazing zucchini chocolate cake...I've never tried to make one, but I can attest to the fact it was delicious! Glad to see you finally had some rain, such a difference rain makes in the garden.

  2. Karen-No one in the house wants to eat anymore zucchini! I found a recipe for zucchini brownies that I might try LOL Imagine that!
