Yesterday was Sneak Some Zucchini On Your Neighbor’s Porch Day. Hmm…..my porch was empty. I’ll give my friends and neighbors a pass though, since it’s not a well advertised event. They probably didn’t even realize it was occurring since Target didn’t display themed merchandise two months in advance so you can properly prepare.
I’m surprised Halloween candy isn’t already on the shelves.
But luckily this year I am growing a decent crop in my garden. Last year’s bounty was horrible and I thought I might be in the Bermuda Triangle of Zucchini. I mean, who plants zucchini, and then gets two?
