Oh ye of little faith...

These pictures are for my two coworkers who did not believe me when I said zucchini could get really big. First, a photo of the zucchini monster with my lovely daughter Annie for reference.



And this is the baseball bat that I stubbed my toe on while harvesting the embryos of said monster for ummm..further research. This one had hidden under a leaf and was left to its own devices. I put it in Tate's harvest basket, to his great amusement. He even took it to a barbarque to show to his friends. Of course it wasn't edible at this size, but we definitely got some mileage out of it!

Wow Rosie! Are you giving that plant steroids?

Wanna hear something sad? I went to the garden this morning to find my giant plant in bad shape. It got a case of powdery mildew in the past couple of days AND some critter has been eating off the leaves that are not infected...I think I may have to put it out of its misery. I am very sad... :(
