Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbors’ Porch Day

Just the other day, my husband asked if I like zucchini, because someone wanted to give us some. No! No way! Because I know they would bring at least a bushel, and then return with more. Zucchini is notoriously easy to grow and provides a bountiful harvest. Therefore, those who grow it have a lot to share. That’s why August 8th is Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbors’ Porch Day. Wellcat has some zucchini recipes, and a list of the top 20 ways to get rid of excess zucchini. Unfortunately, the list only has six items so far, and does not include the obvious sneaking them onto your neighbor’s porch. Here’s a sample:

1) Carefully place a dozen or more zucchini in a large, sturdy black plastic trash bag, then add a couple layers of unwanted clothing. Drive to nearest Goodwill or Salvation Army, hand over bag to nearest volunteer. Politely refuse any offered receipt. Leave quickly.

2) Look for out of the way places which have signs posted, “Clean Fill Wanted.”

3) Reserve 1/2 of the space in large, upright freezer, gather all available plastic containers & freezer bags. Drink a vat of your favorite caffinated beverage, in preparation for staying up round the clock to puree large quantities of zucchini. This can then be packaged neatly and artistically labeled: “For Zucchini Nut Bread Recipe.” These packages can be freely given, along with copies of recipe, to anyone on your Christmas list. [Ed. note: I solemnly promise that I will eventually post this recipe.]
