Garden Follies

I have been pretty excited watching as our small garden grew this year, the addition of the goat and sheep poo has really enriched the soil.  Last week I went out and picked a few of the zucchini and yellow squash to make a stir fry.  I didn't want them to get too large and seedy - note the deck of cards for comparison.  

Turns out what I thought was zucchini turned out to be cucumbers!  I have never seen cucumbers grow so large.  I went back out into the garden and while I found many, many huge cucumbers I didn't see any zucchini.  Darn seed plants.

Don't get me wrong, the family is devouring the cucumbers.  I was just craving hamburger stuffed zucchini smothered in cheese.
