Zucchini is In Season
What happens when it is so stinking hot and humid that you don't even want to spend time in the garden? You get hurried, and don't go bed to bed to check on everything. You miss the two zucchini hiding in the shade. They love the heat, growing as you are wilting. Maybe they are a little bigger than the perfect size, but they are still beauties.
We are going to have a family get together tomorrow, with my sister from Nashville visiting for an overnight stay. We will spend lots of time talking garden speak. On the menu are cole slaw, potato salad and a fava bean salad. That nice big red onion will look great in the potato salad, and maybe a little in the cole slaw as well. I am off now to shuck the favas, then steam them to get out the little green beans.
