Zucchini, July 2014

Oversized zucchini next to an apple for comparison

Just a reminder for my fellow vegetable growers out there: check your zucchinis.

No seriously, lift up those giant leaves — all of them — and take a peek.

I could swear this big boy was the length of my finger a couple of days ago, and now it’s longer than my forearm.

My cherry tomatoes are just starting to turn. I should be able to start picking them in the next few days. I’m very excited.
