The Trouble With Zucchini

In response to the previous post, Gdireneoe asks, "BTW ... What's wrong with zucchini?"

There's nothing wrong with zucchini, per se. If you don't bother them, they won't bother you. Things get ugly when people try raising them in captivity.

Zucchini is the kudzu of the veggie patch, the fruitcake gift of summer. Pop a few innocent-looking seeds in the ground, and the next thing you know you're up to your wazoo in squash. You can't even foist them off on the neighbors unless you sweeten the deal with some decent corn, or maybe a watermellon.

In fact, August 8 is
Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbors Porch Day. If you've been spared so far, count yourself lucky.
