the big zucchini


The Big Zucchini
One of the first results from Amy's newest hobby, backyard gardening. There is enough room on her property for a sizeable vegetable patch, which is doing fine. Monster zucchinis quickly appeared, including this one I brought back last week. The size of a small torpedo, it served as an ingredient in three dishes (lasagne, chicken rogan josh and goulash soup). Not bitter at all. As for her other plants, peas were sprouting, a lone jalapeno appeared ready, bell peppers were on their way and carrots seemed lost amid the giant weeds Amy has fought a steady battle with. Fingers crossed I'll be able to raid the patch Labour Day weekend. - JB
