We had a new family move in behind us this Spring. The speak no English.....but we have something in common. Gardening
They turned their entire back yard into a veggie garden. One day I stood on a stool and handed them an aloe plant. Ours had gotten so huge that we broke off all the babies and had to give 11 of them away! That was how I discovered they didn't speak English....no matter. They understood and were happy to take the aloe baby home.
Last week when I was weeding a young man poked his head over the fence and said his parents want me to have this:
okay....this is seriously the largest zucchini I've ever seen.
I was thrilled of course and asked him to wait a moment. I gave him a couple jars of blueberry jam in return. He was very excited about it. I love good neighbors....
As for that giant zucchini? Dean loves it so Jill gave me a couple recipes to try.
Zucchini bread....one for us...both are tasty!
and one for a friend who just had twins...
And zucchini sweet relish...equally yummy!
Jill, thanks for the recipes, Dean is one happy man!
