If you go away for a few days, and you happen to have a zucchini plant tucked away in a back corner of your garden, you may find a very large surprise awaiting you upon your return, as I did.This one's as big as my cat~ but weighs much more!
When I left, the squashes still had their fresh flowers still attached, and were maybe the size of my thumb. I was only gone for 4 days.
I plan to grate this up and put it in chocolate muffins to freeze. (The zucchini, not the cat :-))
