First Zucchini Ever!

Our first zucchini next to the International Standard of Measurement.

This summer has featured a number of garden growing “firsts” for me, including first cucumber, first fava bean and now, my first zucchini. (That would be “calabacín” in Spanish). When originally tried to start the zucchinis indoors in late May, none of the seeds germinated. Thinking they were in some way inferior, I dumped the rest of the pack into a trough and ended up with an overcrowded patch of zucchini plants (oops) which have been crowding out the cilantro, dill and carrots every since.  I am quite proud of the fact that I managed to resist harvesting this bad boy when he was still just a cute miniature vegetable, and waited until he reached peak maturity.

(In case you are wondering, the zucchini added a fresh textural element to chicken burritos).

In other notes, my fall raspberries are FANTASTIC! Huge and sweet!
