Have you ever noticed that no matter what vegetable you may like, but not your favorite, always seems to be the most prolific growing in your garden? You can count on Zucchini to be one of those vegetables. Now I like zucchini, no problem there, but having it at every meal for 6 months in a row does get to be a bit much.
I planted a garden for my family and myself and just on a whim I added eggplant. I did not know how to cook eggplant and while I did not hate it, it wasn’t exactly my favorite. Naturally, when my garden started to grow, the only thing that grew in large quantity was the eggplant. I gave away as much as anyone wanted and still had an ample supply to feed several armies on the march. Even when the rest of the plants died off my eggplant was still growing!
I’ve spoken about watermelon before and I will again because if it starts to grow, it never stops! The nice thing about watermelon though is that you don’t actually have to carry it over to your neighbors porch to get rid of the excess, it will actually make it’s way over to them on its own!
I tried planting blueberries and got three berries, I tried planting strawberries and got one, and my raspberry plants never produced the first berry at all. But even today, after I pulled all my eggplant plants up and burned them, they grew wild in my yard! I finally moved.
How to celebrate – Warn your neighbors if you plan on planting zucchini, or eggplant, or watermelon. Buy a black outfit so that you can place your bounty on your neighbor’s porch at night without being seen. Make sure you plant your garden where neighbors can’t see it if you intend on making nightly deposits to rid yourself of over stack (that garden is a dead give-a-way of who is mysteriously giving away vegetables no one wants.
