Compost Saves the Day!

In August, I lamented my failure to grow even one zucchini successfully this year. Success, however, has not eluded me, at least not success with zucchini. Earlier today I spied a zucchini squash hiding amidst the leaves of the volunteer squash plant growing in the compost pile. Hooray for the compost pile!!

I found it just in time to harvest it before it became a monster zucchini. I think grilled with olive oil and fresh basil, freshly ground black pepper, maybe a sprinkle of feta cheese….

And on another note, isn‘t the gate seen in the photo cute? Dan made it from some old window shutters found at a tag sale…. Go Dan!
