Zucchini Round-up

There’s a great story in Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle about zucchini. Her garden overflowed with zucchini and she laid awake at night trying to figure out what to do with her bumper crop.

It didn’t help that other people were trying to give them to us. One day we came home from some errands to find a grocery sack of them hanging on our mailbox. The perpetrator, of course, was nowhere in sight.

“Wow,” we all said—“what a good idea!”
