Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day

When : August 8th

Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day . Now that's nasty! But hey, what are you going to do with an endless supply of zucchini fruit?

Experienced gardener's know that Zucchini is one of the most prolific plants in all of the gardening world. A single plant produces a seemingly endless supply of Zucchini. A small row of zucchini has the potential to end world hunger.

By the time August arrives, gardeners are reaping far more zucchini than they can possibly use. They use it daily in an untold number of recipes, from soups and stews, to breads and dips. Still, the fruit matures on the vine faster than anyone can even pick it. Zucchini growers become desperate, as they try to give zucchini away to family, friends and everyone they encounter. By August, even non-gardeners have had enough. Everyone avoids you, with your arms laden with giveaway fruit.

Desperate times calls for desperate measure. It's time to sneak over, under the cover of darkness, to your neighbors porch, and unload some zucchini. Today is that day. This may solve your problem for today. But, what will you do with the harvest tomorrow!?!

Origin of Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day :

Already had some come our way. We neglected to put it in our garden, cause almost eveyrbody else around here has it and are "willing" to share.

What a great zucchini day!

    We are looking for places to leave our bounty. Actually so far we have had takers for our surplus but I am sure that will not be the case forever. ;-)

    It's that time of year when you have to keep your car doors locked and the windows up.
