Optimistic Zucchini

    Normally our garden overwhelms us with zucchini.  I have photos showing me holding zucchini as big as chunks of firewood.  I have drawn several cartoons dealing with the problem of what to do with too many of the zucchinis.  That has not been a problem this year.  We have yet to harvest our first zucchini.
    I noticed yesterday that there are a couple of the vegetables finally starting to form, but we are moving into the season where a frost could hit us some night, so who knows if we will actually get to eat any zucchini this year.  Despite the fact that time is limited in our growing season, the plant continues on like nothing is wrong and is still producing flowers.  In the photo above you can see a couple of the blooms.
