This is a sample of some of the zuchinni I tend to forget about after a week or so of the sitting on the plant. These are the ones I give to my wifes restaraunt or I use for deeo frying. I tend to not see a lot of my veggies due to their leaf size etc covering the food. Ever fiond extra large items in your garden along these lines? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

My friend Cordula used to make stuffed zucchini with big ones like that.

Hello Grandpa Bob That sure is a huge one in the picture! Sure you will get many uses from it . I love zuchinni ;) I like it breaded and then fried up.Then I dip it in some ranch sauce. Also, good in a pasta! My parents love to make bread from it. I have tried to bake some zuchinni bread, but nothing is as good as theirs LOL. Happy posting!

Whoa! That one's a decent size alright! I love zucchini, but I don't know if I could manage to finish off one as big as this!

Usually if my veggies get really big, I'll see them as I carefully pull leaves aside and look for any that need picking. However, I've just recently found a whole slew of plum tomatoes nestled in the grass clippings I use to mulch with hiding behind/under a thick cover of leaves. My husband and I were searching for ripe tomatoes when he moved some leaves aside and I spotted a small red patch. Upon closer inspection, I found them and could barely get to them being they were deep within the plant on the ground. 10 of them, all beautifully red and blemish-free.

HI Grandpa Bob: Wow! That is a big one huh? (EG)!! I'm sure it will still be ok, for fried zucchini, or to use in a cake or bread OH God my mouth is watering just thinking of it all; its been ages since I had any of that; You really do have quite a green thumb there!!!

I have not done that in a long time. I do remember one particular cucumber, that I fondly nicknamed the "Yellow Submarine" It was around so long it turned yellow and it was absolutely huge !! !!

Yeah, that's a little on the premium size... but when I was married and living in BC, I'd find one, two-three times that size every year. Wouldn't eat it though.
