Seven years ago, naive 16 year old me thought it would be a great idea to plant six zucchini plants in my backyard garden.
Six zucchini plants.
For anyone whose grown squash, one plant of any squash is plenty for a family.
Just look at how happy I look holding my oversized zucchini next to my overgrown plants. I was stressed. I was harvesting 3-4 zucchini per day and my family and friends couldn't eat it fast enough. But I was so proud of growing all that zucchini that I tried to eat as much of it as I could.
So I did, and I've never looked at zucchini the same since. In all honesty zucchini is pretty tough for me to eat sometimes, but I still love growing it. Fortunately I've learned a few different ways to cook zucchini that make it absolutely delicious and enjoyable. (even for someone like me!)
