My wonderful zuchinni Mutato (read more here) aka "the slug" has started to weep. I think it feels spring is here and wants to shed its seeds. It fits comfortably around my neck as a giant travel pillow and was harvested in January 2011, after it went unnoticed - hiding under its big green leaves (hard to believe I know). Interestingly it was green for a long time and has only turned golden in recent months. Amazing how long it has survived on my kitchen bench, just a bit moist underneath when I picked it up today. Off for the chop this week, I imagine there will be more seeds than I could ever use (hello sow, give, grow) - hope one of them throws me another interesting creation. Looking forward to the zuchinni glut, when everyone is lamenting planting too many on the other side of the world I'm pining for some green or golden goodness.
