Zucchini Desperate Too
by Nancy Thompson
|Our awful heat spell finally broke last week with 60 to
80 mile an hour winds and torrential downpours. It left cooling temps
and lower humidity which I will take any time. The wind pushed over my
tomato cages, uprooted sunflowers and pushed down flowers, pumpkins and
winter squash. As I surveyed the damage, using hammer and stakes here;
string and pen knife there I came at last to the summer squash. There
among hail punctured leaves lay the ever growing zucchini. Low and
behold at the very bottom the elusive monster grew hidden under layers
of blossoms and wet and damaged leaves along with 5 or more smaller
ones. Even after canning and giving the stuff away there was just too
much. My friends were walking away and I was zucchini desperate.
