Big zuke

And that's not even the biggest one! Zucchini (courgette, or Cucurbita pepo) should be eaten when it's no more than, oh, 6-8" long, I'd say. But if you miss one on the plant, and let it grow for a day or two too long, it turns out like this!

Why am I including this photo on SharonCT Daily photo? Well, it is farm country!

I love zucchini bread but haven't made it in along time.

We like to cook zucchini with yellow squash, and we have some squash almost that big!

Wow, It's so big, but I don't like it. We call it "Pepino" here.

Over here we'd call that a marrow. They are purposely grown this large and stuffed with a minced meat mixture and baked....yummy :o)

That is an amazing plant and the little girl holding it is so cute.

I just had some zucchini bread the other day that my daughter made and it is delicious.
