Previous post here. July 7, 2013 update here. (The 2013 post is highlighted by the “zucchini breakage disaster”. And the fact that the post permalink says it’s the year “2103”. Oops. I started to make the same typo this time and caught myself.)
The zucchini have cleared the top of the trellis! I’m now trying to train them over the top and down the other side. We’ll see how that goes.
We sliced up and marinated the first zucchini in olive oil, basil, and lemon juice, then barbecued it. Somehow, it looked bigger on the vine. (251 grams = about 1/2 lb.)
I guess they can get to 3-4′ long. That’s a picture for later in the summer.
42 grams of basil made about 1/2 cup pesto. The pesto was used in Pagliacci’s style pesto pasta salad. (Peas, pesto, mayo. A very nice summer dish.)
I don’t know that I’d ever spelled “barbecue” before today. I assumed it had a “q” in it. Nope.
