Zucchini!!

Post 40
Because I started my seeds early but didn't actually get the garden planted until much later than usual due to other things in my life, harvest time is a little later for me than most folks.  So I'm proud to say that I picked my first zucchini and await the followers with much expectation.  We have lots of varieties of squash this year.  Of course there are the standard summer squash; zucchini and yellow crook neck but I'm also hoping my ronde de nice globe zucchini will produce soon.  I can see spaghetti squash that are about plum size and growing quickly.  We have a few winter squash and pumpkins too.  And gourds!  Bushel basket, big apple and luffa.  The rest of the garden is mostly tomatoes!!! Lots of varieties and colors and I can't wait until I pick the first ones!  Orange/yellow tomatoes with a splash of purple on their cheek or all green ones; yellow, red, orange and purple; cherry size and giant ones that fill a plate!
