Look, look! Here is a zucchini plant that I sprouted from seed. There is no greater excitement than to see a seed sprout and grow into a healthy, fruit-yielding plant. We are at mid-May and this is the only zucchini seedling that I put into the ground, of the four seeds that I sprouted. I have high hopes of bringing this plant to maturity. Yummy visions of zucchini bread and calabasitas (Southwestern-style squash casserole) float in my head. But, whoa Nellie! We've a ways to go yet; perhaps I should have planted two (an heir and a spare)? I'm thinking if plants could talk, this one would say, "Stop watching me and let me grow!"
