Zucchini Summer Squash
July 16, 2010
I picked the first of the zucchini a couple of days ago. The zucchini is growing in a 5 gallon container. It has been looking quite promising but it will be interesting to see how the zucchini performs overall in the container. I don't know the variety of this zucchini as the tag was missing when I bought it. So far the squash is a bit misshaped but that could be due to a lot of factors. The largest of the squash was a little over 10 inches so that is just perfect size for sautéing the way we like them. I like picking zucchini before it reaches the 10 - inch mark for best flavour and texture. Picking at this size encourages more fruit usually resulting in being able to pick one squash daily.
