    Since the beginning of July I've harvested over 30 large Zucchini.
    So close to 1 per day.
    Most 3" in diameter and 15+" long.
    I love spiralized sauted zucchini(zoodles).
    Here's a great Zucchini bread recipe that uses lots of zuccs.

    Next I'm going to try making zucchini fritters.

      I take. some to the food bank, & other places, Seem to get rid of them easy enough
      , but all else fails, they make good moist addition to the compost bin.

            Was on the slope for a couple of weeks and I gave my parents instructions to harvest whatever they wanted from the garden that was ready.
            Told them they could give away some zucchini if they wanted to.
            Well after a few zucchini they were done.
            Came home to a mess of them.
            ended up with a 100.2# of zucchini I harvested yesterday.
            My corn is doing awesome as well it's darn near ready for harvest.
            Cabbages will be harvested today or at least a bunch of them.

              Holy zucchinis!!! :topjob: Question, have you ever noticed that they may have more of a tendency to be a little bitter when they get that large? Just curious. Do you know what causes one to be bitter?
              Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

                No I haven't noticed any of mine to be bitter yet this year.
                Then again I've only eaten a few of them a lot of them got shredded, spiralized, Etc and thrown in the freezer.
                I wouldn't know what causes them to be bitter.
                Could it be a tendency of the cultivar of zucchini that you are growing?
                My zucchinis are Black Beauties and BC2.

                  Cabbage anyone?
                  Some of my cabbages are done so today I have to make sauerkraut!
                  17.3 lb each for the two that I harvested today and that's just the head not including the outer leaves.
                  I'm thinking this 5 lb crock ought to work well!

                      Few gallons of green beans to the freezer.
                      ....some more pints of beets too.

                        we didn't get near the volume of beans that you did... That hi-tunnel you put over your beans evidently worked well.
                        I planted yellow wax and Contender... the yellow wax is producing much better than the green contender.. I have the plants too close.. "Next year" I'm going to plant them further apart... I may have gone a little heavy on the 8-32-16 before actually planting too..

                          Yea , the high tunnel worked well
                          except during the hot spell.
                          ...a work in progress

                            Got my sauerkraut fermenting in the crock and all looks good there.
                            Harvested a whole bunch of broccoli today and some kohlrabi.
                            Most of it is blanched and bagged for the freezer.

                              Right on! That’s exactly what we got going on. Large cabbages going to sauerkraut, plenty of peas and green beans and cucumbers. A green house full of red tomatoes coming in nicely and I see another arm sized zucchini ready to be picked at any time. The wife also brought in a large bull of potatoes for French fries the other night and the corn is full sized this year. Probably gonna make up another batch of compost tea tomorrow if this traffic ever gets moving in Cooper landing and I can finish my routes at work. Gotta love it! Thanks for all the good vibes in this gardening thread.

                                More broccoli today.
                                A gallon and a half of peas.
                                21 more zucchini.
                                2 Early Acorn winter squash.
                                And 9 or so of the Gold Nugget winter squash.
                                Some of this would have been harvested earlier but I had to be down at the Kenai Peninsula Fair for the weekend.
                                But a nice haul none the less.
                                I'm pretty much done with zucchini and my freezer is running out of room for it.
                                I have one shelf in my upright freezer that is entirely stuffed with freezer bags of zucchini. Some of it is shredded, some spiralized, some cut into long slices on my mandolin slicer for lasagna.
                                I have some friends who would like some and we'll see about the rest.
