Vegetable shenanigans

… or, “what happens when I leave the garden alone for a week”.

Tons of new chile peppers, both sweet and hot, and a harvest of the Delicata squash. (That’s all I’ll get from 8 vines, I’m afraid). But check out the size of the zucchini. If you need more scale…

Wowza! Look! It’s bigger than my head!    zucchini head

That’s what I get for leaving the garden to its own devices for a week – monster bloody zukes.

The texture might be icky from having grown so large (they get a pumpkiny, almost thready texture when they get big) but the flavor will still be great. It’s a perfect candidate for shredded basil zucchini (recipe later if I remember!)
