"When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in a garden, my heart skips a beat."
~ Gwyneth Paltrow

Oh Gwyneth, have you ever grown a real garden? My heart skips a beat too, but mostly it is really a bit of panic. So far I have picked 18 of these, trying to catch them when they are on the small side. Technically they are not zucchini, but rather Latino squash, a bit more flavorful, nutty and firmer than traditional zucchini, but you use them the same way. I planted two hills, with a few seeds in each one and I swear I can hear them grow. We eat them, in some manner, at every meal. 

Send zucchini recipes please.
