We left Thursday and came back Sunday. On Thursday I checked the garden just before we left and harvested all the zucchini I could find that were even close to being ready. So I now have a little illustration for you. ahem...
This is the size of a typical, what-you-might-find-in-the-grocery-store zucchini. Around 7 to 8 inches in length. This is what I picked on Thursday - a little early, but it was still fairly mature.
Now the one on the right is what we normally get from our garden. Only a few inches longer than "grocery store normal", our typical garden zucchini is about 10-11 inches. Pretty nice, huh?
And now, don't be skeered - this is what happens when you leave the garden alone for 3 days...
Ok, so curled up, the thing was 14 inches long!! It probably weighs at least a couple pounds! Here is a little every day object comparison.
And here is my poor child trying to hold the silly thing!
LOL! Yeah, that one was a shock!
And now, for a couple of my favorite images from the weekend. My handsome Hubby on the night of our anniversary.
And me. We were dining at a restaurant called Fish Tails. It is right on the seawall. Very fun patio atmosphere.
Thanks so much for looking. I will have all the details later.
