Apparently zucchini are the easiest vegetables to grow ever, so I guess I should knock my pride-o-meter down a notch. Still, it feels really great to go up to the garden and pick things that make a dinner everyone raves about. I had something to do with growing that! It’s take and bake, and I helped! Grin.
Most people know, when you get seriously big zucchini you stuff them. I pretty much planted my squash for that very purpose and have been waiting for some to get big enough to really make a feast. Wow! I had my eye on two beauties, and totally over looked the other three growing in less conspicuous places. Let’s just say, we had a nice harvest on Saturday.
For a bit of perspective, here is a photo of the 7 year old with two of the zucchini we harvested. Sharing with my daughter the wonder of growing food was a strong reason for starting the Laughing Place. Each time we climb those stairs we find something new and wonderful!
