Test trials are being run calculating how many hours does it take to grow from small-ish (good but could stay on the vine longer) to medium-ish (just about right) to a-little-too-largeISH (too much middle). Crazy fast growers!
The eightball zucchini planted from seed in February has just overrun a container plant (moved this morning) and its side boundaries running into the edging plants of bulbine. The bulbine will survive (I think) but isn't blooming due to lack of sunshine.
Just when I thought I had finally given the squashes enough room for the first time in three growing seasons... the summer squash has run across the nearest flagstone pathway to impede passage and threaten the carrots. Good thing there are more walkways.
We are not complaining! We are continuing to make notes and learning from these experiences.
Meanwhile ... plenty of fresh edibles are being served up in every imagainable form nourishing the pallette.
Stir fry for breakfast is not unusual following a morning's harvest. Try some cut up veggies with homemade hummus later in the day. So outrageously healthy and yummy.
Zucchini muffins and The Pioneer Woman's Zucchini Cakes (note: not as healthy but oh, so yummy~~fixed these last squash season-highly recommend) are up next...
