I am so excited! This is the best garden I have ever had! The zucchini got a little out of control when we went on vacation last week. We came home to 8 of the hugest zucchini I have ever seen. I gave several away. Today I prepared the rest of the zucchini for the freezer and I made a few things. I made two loaves of zucchini bread and two zucchini pies (kind of like quiche). Along with the usual cucumbers and squash, today I picked two beautiful tomatoes! Yummy! I also blanched and froze … [Read more...]
