The garden continues to produce, albeit in a rather ugly, end-of-season fashion. The regular tomato plants succumbed early to the blight and I tossed those stalks already. But, the Cherry 100 tomatoes keep right on giving. These die hard zucchini monsters won't give up either. They've turned tough along the bottom, creating a hideous stalk, yet continue to thrive at the other end.
While I was picking the Cherry 100's today, I noticed an entirely new zucchini plant at the base of the original stalk. I believe if this plant were given the luxury of extended light and warm days, it would produce forever!
We have four of these zucchini plants and they are still each producing a zucchini per week. Tonight we enjoyed another batch of Turkish Zucchini Fritters. I also walked a gift of zucchini and tomatoes over to the neighbors. I should think we would all be tired of zucchini, but it hasn't happened yet. We'll even mourn for more of them come winter.
