I planted the zucchini a bit late and it has been a stupid dry Summer thus far. So, not much love on the garden front. But the green beasts have finally started showing some fruit. This is one of the weirdo strains I picked up. It's a Florentine type zucchini. I dug it because it's has all these deep ridges (note the star shapes after cutting) instead of a smooth skin. Tasted just fine. I may have picked it a wee bit too small, but I needed something green for dinner last night. Such a strange vegetable, with the flower attached and the way it just grows into a tuber out of nothing. Creepy.
