The smallest Zucchini is the normal size :teehee:

I have made Zucchini choclate chip muffins :woot: They are really GOOD.
I just weighed it 10 pounds :roflhard: I don't think it will be good to eat,just had to let it grow to see how big it would get :roflhard:
And what is a Marrow Mulene? The plants do get huge.I think there is a plant in back of Evan.The leaves are huge too
Wait till you see my pumpkins when there done growing.Just kidding.I grow small to medium so the little kids can carry them around.

WOW. And I thought the ones that got away from me where huge. I lost my zucchini plants to a squash borer this year but I have some bread in the freezer to remember them by.

When my grandma's get that size we always grate them and freeze it in ziplock bags with 2cups measured into each. That way we can thaw it and use it for zucchini bread and chocolate zucchini cake. :drool:

But even with all of her kids using her zucchini, Grandma always end up leaving a pile of them on the church steps in the hopes someone takes them. :rofl:

A Marrow is.. well.. its err.. a giant zuchinni :roflhard:

My dad used to grow them and make Marrow Wine - never tasted it was always too young. Actually I wonder if there is still some under the floor boards in the house, he used to stash it there!

Wow, you could hurt somebody with that thing!

Another yummy way to make zucchini is to slice it up (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices), marinate for a few hours it in a little bit of Italian dressing, and then grill it. I love it that way! Or even with just a bit of seasoning salt.

I had a friend who used to joke when they get that big you can throw them on the fire ... use them as firewood during the winter. Actually I think he meant it, he grew up with bunches of veggies.

I just made up a mess of zucchini relish. It's the best sweet relish recipe I have ever had. We :heart: it! I have heard Zucchini called Vegetable Marrow (by Hercule Poirot in Agatha Christie books and by my NZ friends).

Or rather, a zucchini is a baby marrow. That "ini" ending means little.

Wow those are huge!! I planted some this year and got 2 off the vines but the rest were white??? Anyone ever heard or seen white zucchini?? I didn't eat them cause I thought maybe they were bad or something as I looked on the internet and couldn't find any such things so out they went!!
