It’s a bird, it’s a plane, my god it’s a zucchini!

Picture it: my backyard, two days ago.

I’d taken Bronco out to pee and check on my garden to see how things were progressing.  I’ve had numerous baby zucchini and strawberries, quite a bit of lettuce, and even some broccoli.

Apparently in all my trips to pick baby zucchini, I never noticed one growing there.

Boy did I notice it the other day!

Without further ado- I present to you… the monster zucchini.


Is it odd that I had four packs of gum at the ready to take this picture?


In it’s rightful place of honor.


Masquerading as a bottle of wine.


Being stepped all over by a horse.


Fredbird was all, “what the fuuck this ain’t no baby!”


Getting a little too cozy with my phone.


It tells some pretty funny stories of it’s time in the garden. (excuse my paint covered wife beater- it gets hot in these ranch style south Georgia homes. And further proof that I am never along- Bronco’s tail.)

I haven’t cut it open yet, feel sort of guilty after it shared it’s life story with me. But rest assured- it’s life will end soon… and it will (hopefully) be delicious.

    HOLY MOLY! I’m just starting to get baby zukes and squash. I’m jealous of your monster. It would be perfect for stuffed zucchini.

    Oh, and it’s not odd having 4 packs of gum on hand but 4 packs that are all different brands and flavors is definitely special. 😛

    Just wondering if you have made anything with your monster zuk yet?
