Giant Zucchini

Last night we harvested an amazingly big zucchini. And considering we didn't think we'd get any from the plant this year we're particularly impressed with the outcome. Of course we had to use Mags as a measure of how large it really is. Keep in mind, she has adorably chubby thighs, but this monster makes them look slim! Here are the stats:

Weight -
Mags: 12lbs, 13oz
Zucchini: 7lbs, 8oz

Length: -
Mags: 24 inches
Zucchini: 17 inches

Too bad the county fair is over a month away. I think we'd have an award winner!

Maggie's so adorable! Love the comparison photo. Wow, so what are you going to make with that huge zucchini??

Thanks, Nancy! I'm not sure what we're going to do with the zucchini yet. Probably saute some and then give the rest to neighbors. Heck, it'll feed the whole street!

Jeez Louise, you weren't kidding when you said you had a really huge zucchini growing in your garden!

Lyndsay said...

No kidding!

Um, wow!

Maggie looks really tall in picture #1.

She is tall! Her doctor today said she's above the 95 percentile for height.
