This morning before church I picked fifteen tomatoes and four zucchini. What they say about zucchini is true: it grows overnight! Two of this morning's harvest were (once again) so large that they were donated to the Bloodhound for his entertainment.
Note here about the Bloodhound and his vocabulary: he knows three nouns! Toy. Water. Zucchini. I venture to bet that most dogs out there cannot discern a zucchini from a toy. When our vet came out last week, I told the baying bloodhound to "Get your zucchini!" and he bypassed his "toy" for his giant green zucchini. Brilliance.
Back to the vegetables: tomatoes don't pose too much of a problem for tomato-loving me. Eat them like an apple right out there in the yard, eat them in sandwiches, make pasta, make gazpacho...(and I made another batch of gazpacho this afternoon - we like to eat it served with an avocado, with the cold soup poured over it.)
Now, this zucchini thing is incredible. I am hazarding a guess that these things don't hold much nutritive value, but I should consult the Bride-to-Be on that one - her degree was in nutrition. Nevertheless, I hate to waste, and so we are eating lots and lots of zucchini. Tonight, it stars as Zucchini Cobbler. Details will come at a later date...
