When Zucchini Take Over The Garden

Zucchini Poetry

It was an an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny
silver striped green zucchini.
While we slumbered, what went wrong?
Overnight it's two feet long!


The giant, flesh-eating zucchini,
or so my children say,
is on the loose in the garden.
They're not going back today.

What's more, they swear they'll never,
eat it ever again any more.
You never can tell the trouble you're in
when you let it in the door.

What is the best way to store my Zucchini?

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Store fresh picked or purchased zucchini in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to one week for best quality. Be sure the zucchini is dry when you put it in the bag as moisture will encourage mold and spoilage.

Zucchini is best if cooked when fresh and small as it will have more moisture. Steaming produces the crispest, least soggy vegetable. If using zucchini in a casserole recipe, it may be parboiled or steamed to remove some of the moisture. Or make allowances of the amount of moisture to avoid having an extra, runny result!

Experiment with herbs with zucchini it needs them! Or add flavor with onion, garlic, cheese or tomatoes!

Can they be staked and grown vertically rather than on the ground?
