mmmmmmmmmNo zucchini? Man, zucchini on the grill is one of my favorite things to eat.Yeah, we love zukes. Grilled is awesome, but I even like to grate it and mix it in with taco meat.
I like to mix 'em with egg, onion, bread crumbs, whatever and make zucchini cakes.Going to be growing Zukes for the first time this year. Anyone have any tips? Do they grow like cucumbers or do they sprawl out further like winter squash? Do tomato cages work well for them? Don't know the exact variety of seeds I have, but it's one of the typical straight green varieties from Burpee.Pick them young, the fruit grow fast!
The ones we grow are like other squash, sprawling all over. I've never tried them with tomato cages, but I'm not sure it would work. They grow on the ground, not up on a structure - which isn't to say they won't, but it doesn't seem to be their inclination. Maybe someone else has tried it.
All this sounds wonderful, but the last time we grew zuchini, we had one plant, and it produced a minimum of two per day, yes that's 14 a week, at least, the plant was a monster. Real easy to get burnt out, man. We ran out of people to give them to. Cucumbers are a different story, I make pickles so none go to waste. Okra grow like madness too, but we roast 'em or pickle them too and they go fast. We will be growing eggplant again this year. I like them roasted on the grill or in the oven, fried, or in baba ghanouj.
