Remember – last May – when 5 zucchini plants didn’t seem like enough? In your enthusiasm, you planted 12 - and now, you have enough zucchini to feed a small village and the plants have taken over the entire garden. Take heart – there are many uses – and the frosts of September will curb their urge to take over the world!
