First off I can’t begin to tell you how super easy it is to grow your own zucchini.  Each summer a grow a few dozen summer squash including the zucchini sometimes on one plant.  The steam of the zucchini doesn’t like to be a mess with too much so if you can leave that be by mounding the plant up to grow – you are all set.  I love growing this vegetable because of it easy and the plant is beautiful along the edge of my garden.

Making bread to share during the holidays is just one of the awesome recipes I love using for this produce.  I have many more recipes using summer squash or zucchini on my website so be sure to take a look.

  1. Wish I had a loaf right now, Bren! Looks perfect. Maybe I’ll plant some next year, if I feel then that I’m on top of things enough to not lose control of thevegetablethatgrowsbeforeyourveryeyes!

    • HA … love it Jean ‘thevegetablethatgrowsbefreyourveryeyes’ – AWESOME! WEll, you can always visit the local farmers market and grab some zucchini this time of year. If you lived closer I would gladly give you some of mine.

  2. Your photos and tips are excellent! I love zucchini in every form, and from the garden is the best – so fun to peek under a leaf and find a huge one that you’ve missed for a week. One of my favorite recipes that I’ve tweaked over the years is for zucchini brownies; my family now prefers them to standard ones. Eating brownies with two cups of zucchini in them even feels healthy!
