Don’t bother with green zucchinis next year. Yellow ones fruit earlier and are much easier to spot amongst the leaves so you won’t end up with unexpected marrows. Scallopinis are a more interesting flying-saucer shape and can be yellow or green.
If you’re being buried under a mountain of zucchinis then try some zucchini recipes. Chocolate zucchini cake was particularly good. I’ve successfully trialled growing zucchini plants in tyres. If you want to see the results or want to be buried in a mountain of zucchinis next year, come on the last fresh food garden course of the season on Saturday 6 March 2010.
