Are you growing zucchini in your garden this year? Are you starting to regret it yet? If you have any experience with these delightful fast-growing vegetables, you know what I mean.
Last week I was gifted with several zucchini squashes from various patients. I have a feeling that I wasn't the only person receiving those gifts.
