How to Get Rid of all those Zucchinis

Saturday is the day to do just that because:

Its National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day – August 8, 2020

It’s that time of year when keen gardeners have way too much zucchini on their hands, and so August 8 is National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day.

Have fun on Saturday!









Here are some threads about zucchinis:

Feel free to abandon some on my doorstep! Between fungus and squash beetles I haven't picked a single one yet. Not sure how many of  the plants are still alive, my labels got damaged, some viney things are still alive, but not many. Over 80% loss rate on vining plants.

It’s the end of winter in NZ so looking forward to sowing seeds for this summer and am keen to try making some zucchini flour and trying out the chocolate cake recipe here  https://www.amodernhomestead.com/squash-flour-gaps-paleo-chocolate-cake/?fbclid=IwAR2iHkzckxsBDa8cRo8Mru7pT7gzpv0zevsL2aYIu9NpybTUIHNIJaaEvYM

I have diced and dehydrated zucchini to use in soups and pickles, it doesn’t use much space and reconstitutes well.
