Did you know that August 8th is national Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day? Hey, I'm not making this up! And if you've ever grown these Italian cousins of American summer squash you would know why such a day is necessary.
Just one Zucchini plant has enough output to feed a small developing nation. And a small row of plants could be a major contributor to ending world hunger. If you plant early, by August you've given every family member, coworker and neighbor a lifetime supply. And people you know start avoiding you because they've made all the soups, stews, breads and dips that one can that are zucchini based and don't want to take the chance that you'll hand them any more of your garden's bounty.
So desperate times call for desperate measures and you have to start sneaking over to the porches in your area, sometimes in the dark of the night, and gift the unsuspecting with zucchini. So go boldly forth and remember that it IS better to give than to receive, no matter what your neighbors may think.
