This morning when I went out to water the garden, one of two blossoms on one of the zucchini plants was fully open.
It remains to be seen if a zucchini will develop there.
Last year, we planted zucchini, but the output was not what I expected.
In the past, I had learned that I would get an overabundance — along with everyone else I knew who had zucchini in their garden, to the point where you couldn't give it away.
Instead, last year's harvest was downright pitiful.
Even where a fruit would chance to develop, it would frequently shrivel up and drop off while still a fingerling.
Only a few grew to harvestable size, and even then they were pretty small. I could tell that if I didn't pick them, they too would shrivel and die.
I hope this year is better.
