Last year, you may remember, I accidentally bought eighteen zucchini plants (thinking I was only buying three).  I got no zucchini from any of them.   The soil was just not healthy enough.  However, I do not think this year will be that case again.  Here is my first baby!   I’m so excited.

  1. How about a lovely Zucchini Carpaccio salad. Use a cheese slicer to slice Zuc from top to bottom or an inexpensive Japanese mandoline. Can be purchased at any Japanese market. Lay the Zucs over a bed of Arrugula, toast some pine nuts and finish with slivers of good Parm. Finally drizzle a lemon.EVOO Vinaigrette , some s & p and ENJOY !

    • Rita, as I type, I am munching on Zucchini Carpaccio salad sans Arrugula (because I didn’t have any on hand). I made a dressing of balsamic vinaigrette and lemon pepper with toasted pine nuts and slivered parm. Outstanding! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Update: It’s four days after the above picture was taken. The squash was harvested today at 11 inches in length, 2 inches in diameter. There are plenty of blossoms and other small fruit forming so I think I will be successful with this crop.
