As I mentioned in another thread, the zucchini is in. I never cease to be amazed how fast these things grow. We harvested Thursday, and I got another wheelbarrow load today.
Anyway, my grandkids will be by this week for three weeks, and I've thought to buy a skiff to toot them around the inland estuaries, maybe fishing, or just watching the wildlife. The boat I want costs $400, so I figured -- hell, why not just wait a few days and hollow out a zucchini? A couple of oarlocks, and we're in business.
(Which leaves me with the decadent idea: What if I tried to produce a monster zucchini, like those monster pumpkins? And my brain's not even on drugs!)

I have freakishly had zucs for a month. There was one I missed and decided to let it go. I will bring it to the largest zucchini class at the state fair. They eventually turn hard and orange and can be used for fall decoration.
