    I know some of you are rolling your eyes at this post. But after 13 years of valiant efforts I finally harvested my first and only zuchinni! Woo Hoo! It was the only one on the plant that the squirrel didn't get and I'm so excited! I think I will saute it in garlic and olice oil to go with dinner tonight!

    Ah the sweet smell of sucess!

    Huzzah, Nikki! Way to go!

    And I agree with Woodspirit that a side of squirrel would make the dish even sweeter! ;)

    and I have them coming out my ears......I was "warned" that one hill would be plenty, but I put in 4.....and didn't thin them much either......seems like they are "oversized, overnight" if you don't keep checking under all of those leaves!!!
