Oh my God, it's zucchini season.

The time of year when your neighbors and co-workers gardens explode. You likely to open a desk drawer or your mail box and find half a dozen stuffed in there...... Shocked

I know many people like zucchini, but i have to put so much stuff on it to make it taste like at least something, it's not worth it. Sad

Next will come the peaches, then the tomatos (both are delecious, but not by the bushel.)

Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong. I guess no ones home, I'll just leave this 50lb sack of zucchini on the front porch. Twisted Evil

Yay! More Zucchini!!! Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised

I will take a bushel of the Zucchini and a bushel of fresh Peaches any day.

We city folk would love to have this problem. Do you know what fresh produce costs around here?

I'm not in the country. I'm in Austin Tx. I'm talking zuc's from a postage stamp sized garden. They grow like they're on steroids.

And oh, a bushel? when one goes bad, they all go....eeeeech.

You must have a big family.

Actually - I'm posting this thread just poking fun.

It's like you leave your office one minute, and the "zucchini lady" has left her "gift"
They don't want that much either ebrown.

It's a friendlier version of leaving a baby on your doorstep.

How much does various produce cost in Bean Town?

It must be about 25 years ago The Denver Post had a similar article entitled "Zucchini Will Inherit the Earth". I guess some things never change.

Speaking of religion, I feel a great emptiness in my life and am searching for something to give me meaning...

Can anyone help?

fried zucchini, zucchini a la mode, zucchini flambe, zucchini glace, skewered, barbequed, baked, stewed, zucchini fondue, makes a great doorstop, serves as a cudgel in a pinch, as a base for a fertility statue, a bookmark, pincushion, a way to get rid of late staying company "Hey, want some zucchini?" hair rollers, rolling pin, candle holder......

Unseasoned mushrooms on the grill with a couple mesquite chips on the coals. Earth meets wood, sunlight chases shadow across a billowing field. Very spiritual.

I finally had a chance to have zucchini flowers stuffed with goat cheese, served with a dollop of tomato cream sauce.
It was, y'know, a sort of mystical experience...

We all need a good religion, Brown. We've just got to have something to blame when bad things happen to good people.

Oh, it's produce here, isn't it. In this small New Mexican town, tomatoes that taste somewhat like garden grown tomatoes usually go for around 3.99/lb. In other words, about 30% more that extra lean ground beef.
