(because it's so easy to grow and so prolific)
There's a saying out here in the west: In the summertime, do not leave your car windows down because, if you do, someone will put zuchini in your car.
LOL That's probably not too far off the mark, either!
I'm not quite at that point, but I have a feeling that in a few weeks, my neighbors are going to be discovering zucchinis on their doorsteps!
When we lived in upstate NY, we referred to zucchini as "Algonquin war clubs" because there were always a few that lurked under leaves and became HUGE. Our next door neighbor, who had farmed for years and had a stupendous vegetable garden, always recommended planting two zucchini plants. The first one to come up, you yanked out of the ground. The second that appeared, you ran the cultivator over a few times. Then you sat on the porch and thanked the gardening gods you didn't have zucchini!
