I picked my first zucchini today. I am so EXcited. The last few days have been EXtremely hot and the garden required EXtra attention to make sure it was water properly. I had been looking for days because I had lots of flowers on the plant but no vegetable. The plant in itself is HUGE. I kept thinking I was missing them or the animal that had been trespassing in my garden was eating them before they matured. Today I saw one and I am very proud to present my lone Zucchinni. I got a few cukes also but this is the prize. lol Can't wait to decide what I am going to do with it. I will be checking recipes.
