Yet another use for a zucchini

Surely this would have been funnier if I had managed to post the photo when coworkers across the nation were tiptoeing through parking lots to leave bags brimming with zucchini in passenger seats; when rural commuters wrote notes on their hands to remind them to lock up their car when they left it to go into work.

Alack, alas, I write now, when we finally have a little rain coming down and the temperature and light levels are dropping and I have to face the pile of inside work because the outside stuff is becoming more difficult and uncomfortable to accomplish.

I assure you, I was watching that fruit in amongst the vines and was certain I was seeing a buttercup squash.  One day, while viewing it from another angle, I realized my error and a new piece of furniture was born – the zucchini doorstop.

    We’ve all been there with overgrown zuccchini. My son used ours as a baseball bat, swatting at overgrown patty pan squash

    I’m not at all surprised that a teenager would find some use other than eating for a vegetable!

  3. That made me laugh this morning! Thank you. I’ve heard of a place not far from where I live that if you don’t lock your car, people will fill them with zucchini.
