For those of you who grow summer veggies, you may encounter what we do: an abundance of zucchini and a question of what to do with it all.

I’m capturing zucchini recipes that sound like winners, as I hate to waste these prolific babies. Ina Garten’s casserole sounds very good. I haven’t tried it yet, but based on the ingredients, I know I will like it.

Please share any zucchini recipes you have. I’d love to see ideas.

I love spring for all the possibilities and the new life it brings. In spite of all these weird weather patterns we’re having in SoCal (unprecedented early Santa Anas = fire hazards), spring has sprung. Because it has been warmer earlier than before, we were able to plant our summer vegetable garden in early May vs. end of the month.

The picture above was taken on May 3. Steve planting his annual vegetables. Today we spent starting clearing the brush from a fallen tree from the Santa Anas. Steve is tending his garden every day.

Overall, a great day back in the biggest part of our house: our yard.

To come: tomatoes, herbs, zucchini, yellow crook neck squash, eggplant, various bell peppers, corn and Swiss chard.
