Welcome to Tuesday - day of the zucchini. As I mentioned last week in Love your zucchini, this humble vegetable is in need of character restoration. As a result, I have vowed to post on the zucchini each Tuesday over late spring and summer as a consequence. On growing, eating, dealing with the glut.
This week - how does a zucchini cope with travelling for 4 hours on the back of a ute? Well, my 'Greenskin' is still alive and erect, but many of its leaves are, I guess, wind burnt,
and many of its male flowers have shrivelled. I think it will survive, but, will it thrive and produce great zucchinis? We will see.
Just to compare the zucchini with fellow travellers, let's compare with the eggplants. Now you'd think that an eggplant would do better than a zucchini wouldn't you? They are pretty tough, have downy stems and thick leaves so you think it would fare better on a road journey? Take a look at this!
What's happening with your zucchini? Any distasters? Brisbanites - did yours get smashed by hailstones? Or are yours hale and hearty? Any picking going on? What zucchini related content do you have. Let me know what's happening either via a comment or via a link to your zucchini post using Mr Linky.
