Once again it is that time of the year when those of us who garden ask ourselves: Why did we plant two zucchini plants instead of just one? How many loaves of zucchini bread do we really use in a year's time? Why do the neighbors pull down the shades, turn off their lights, and lock the doors when they see someone approaching trying to pawn off the extra zucchini? How large a zucchini can you really grow? If I need to water the rest of the vegetable garden, how can I do that without watering the zucchini plant in hopes that it will die a natural death? Why is it so hard for me to pull out the plant when it is still producing even though it has become hard to give the produce away?
