Let the Zucchini harvest begin!
The gigantic orange flowers are transforming into zucchs at an alarming rate. It does not seem to matter how quickly these summer squashes are picked they still seem to multiply. Where we find one there are more to come. Not to sound alarmist, but, the zucch plants and their squashy growths are overtaking the garden - the carrots are now hidden under the cover of the oversized zucchini leaves, the tomatoes are struggling to stay tall and rise above this pushy plant, and the kale has all but given up!

On a positive note, raspberry season has almost ended. Again the plants gave us so many berries that we had to find alternate uses for them. One thing that uses a ton of berries is a pie. Lolli took this task on and managed to squish six + cups in.
