I thought about preparing my garden for most of the spring and early summer, but in the end we decided it was just “one more thing” on the to-do list, and we decided not to do one this year since we’ve been on the go so much. But next year, the veggie I’m most looking forward to other than my beloved tomatoes? Zucchini. Yum.
From savory side dishes and appetizers to sweet breads and desserts, zucchini is one of the most versatile veggies out there. It’s mild flavor makes it a perfect palette for a variety of flavors. And as anyone with a zucchini plant can confirm, they produce a bountiful harvest that could keep a small family well fed all by itself!
