Piglet is going green! No, that’s not green with envy of EC’s wonderful zucchini and squash. But I do feel I can at least make a small contribution to help reduce global warming by cutting down on my personal carbon emissions. How? By not growing zucchini (courgettes) What…has Piglet gone mad? (probably…) How will not growing zucchini help? Easy! I won’t be exuding hot air from exasperation on huffs and puffs, moaning and groaning, sighing and temper tantrums, tears of frustration. Yes, as much at it grieves me folks, despite my best efforts (and I really have tried) I finally concede defeat, and will not be growing any more zucchini! EVER…
Healthy flowers but deformed zucchini
A picture saves a 1000 words! All these misshapen zucchini were picked from the plant pictured above.
My zucchini would certainly not win any prizes!
I’ve tried growing zucchini directly in the ground and in pots and neither method was successful.
Zucchini – I give up!
