WOW! BIG!

I have seen large produce grown in many gardens, but I think THIS one takes the cake! Our zucchini plants had died and weren't producing any more (or so I thought) and so today I figured I would remove the hideous looking, brown plant from our front-yard-"garden". As I pulled the second one out by its gnarled roots, it felt oddly heavy. Sure enough, when I looked down, this beastly squash was hanging, and dragging on the ground! It's like child #5! It's hard to believe a vegetable of this proportion could "hide" under all those leaves, but it sure did! I think I'll seed it and freeze it for future use...we've now got a head start on our "year-supply".

I thought "WOW BIG" was referring to how tall Jaydon and Joel were to be standing next to their baby brother Ezra. It wasn't 'til I saw the next picture of the "GIANT ZUCCINI" that I understood what WOW BIG was about. That is some produce growing in your garden. You have lots of Zuccini for Pineapple Zuccini bread. Yum!! Love G'ma

I am glad you are getting your year's supply in check so that troy and co. can run over after our next big emergency.

Seriously, I'm down for zucchini bread! I love the pictures of the boys. I can't believe how grown up the twins are looking. I also think they look a lot like Ryan the older they get.

That one is a whole lot bigger than the one the crept into Lucy Lu's bed that one time. You take the zucchini bread (cake really!)
