I have been pretty excited watching as our small garden grew this year, the addition of the goat and sheep poo has really enriched the soil. Last week I went out and picked a few of the zucchini and yellow squash to make a stir fry. I didn’t want them to get too large and seedy – note the deck of cards for comparison.
Turns out what I thought was zucchini turned out to be cucumbers! I have never seen cucumbers grow so large. I went back out into the garden and while I found many, many huge cucumbers I didn’t see any zucchini. Darn seed plants.
Don’t get me wrong, the family is devouring the cucumbers. I was just craving hamburger stuffed zucchini smothered in cheese.
