Zucchini… Good Grief! What will I do with it all!

The weather has finally shifted here in the Pacific Northwest and it’s been ideal for ripening the summer crops. We had a wet and cold start to the summer. The last few days have been unbearably hot for me, but the garden has been very happy! Our view is very clouded by the smoke from BC. Our prayers go out to those who have been affected and those who continue to aid in the efforts to end this. 

Here is a picture of the yummy food harvested this evening.

From left to right: Yellow “Cheddar” cauliflower, zucchini, kohlrabi, small pepper, 1 cherry tomato, green beans, yellow summer squash, Walla Walla onion, huge turnip, and 2 cucumbers.

Looks like I have some scrumptious veggies to use this week… and I need some new zucchini recipes to try out! This is only a few of the dozen or more we’ll have within the week!

Pretty soon I’m gonna be gifting our Zucchini like Oprah gifting her studio audience…. Beware friends and family! haha!

    Thanks for visiting Boulderneigh, Emily; so nice to meet a new blog pal! I have a lot of zucchini recipes, but find I use the internet to look for new ones all the time. Last week I made zucchini black bean burgers (four ingredients!) and a new zucchini muffin recipe that was GREAT. We also like fritters, and I just bought an inexpensive spiralizer and made zoodles with homemade pesto for the first time; excellent!

    Hi Emily! I wanted to return the blog visit and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on mine. Lovely harvest photo! I solve the what-to-do-with-all-this-zucchini problem by not planting zucchini, LOL. Seriously, we don't like it all that well. I usually plant a yellow variety, which we like better. But I only grow just a few plants, enough to have some for eating fresh and sauteed on occasion, but not so many as to be overrun. With any summer squash, though, I like to stuff the overgrown ones. Very tasty.

    I totally forgot I had a spiralizer! Thank you for mentioning that. And black bean burgers sound very yummy. I think I'll add that to the list to try. Thank you for stopping by! Look forward to keeping in touch :)Emily

    Haha! That's too funny. We love zucchini and since last years plants didn't do great ( first year at our new home and garden) we planted a few extra this year. Well goodness they liked the garden this year! I'll need to try stuffing the large ones. That sounds yummy!Thank you for stopping by and I hope we can stay in touch :)Emily
