Orange Blossoms and 1 Green Zucchini

The joke is that this time of year, people lock their doors to guard against friends bearing zucchini. Considering how fast these vegetables grow in the heat, it can be 48 hours between a banana and a baseball bat sized zuke. We love the garden fresh addition to our meals in the form of a side dish (banana sized) or zucchini bread (in the case of a baseball bat). We like how the plants are naturally bunny proof with their large prickly leaves that cover the produce.

  1. I operate a definite no-zucchini area but I do love zuccini flowers deep fried. It will also be obvious that I don’t like marrow either! Now cucumbers, that’s a different matter. I eat as many mini-cucumbers as I can grow.

  2. I’ve yet to acquire the taste for zucchinis. I prefer cucumbers and planted them again this year. Last year, the caterpillars feasted on the leaves. When blossoms did appear, they bore no vegetables. Here’s hoping my three plants do better this year.

  3. Interesting about their rapid growth. The other day, someone left a large zucchini in the sharing basket, but it wasn’t as big as a baseball bat! Personally, I much prefer zucchini bread to zucchini the vegetable. I’ll eat the vegetable if it’s cooked well, but it’s not my favorite. My favorite vegetable? Hmm, I guess I’d have to say tomatoes, which technically are not a vegetable, but there’s nothing like fresh home-grown tomatoes in t he summer!! (I also really like lima beans, but people think I’m weird when I confess this preference.)

    1. Thank you for your comments. I sauté zukes in Indian spices and add tamari sauce. That’s our favorite presentation. Ripe garden tomatoes are amazing. Fresh lima beans are great. Frozen, not so much. 😉
