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!
