The zucchini plants in my garden are making an effort to take over the entire square footage of our little backyard plot. They’ve been squashing the lettuce, strangling the cucumber, infringing on tomato territory…and frankly irritating me with their prickly leaves and stems brushing against me at even the slightest movement when I visit the garden. But…they are really something to look at, and I think that I actually might love how grotesquely huge they are. Plus I harvested my first three last night! They’re growing at an alarming rate now…take cover!!!
