You hear a lot of stories about how prolific zucchini is – you get more than you can keep up with. (Like the old joke in gardening circles – don’t leave your car window rolled down or someone will leave a bag of zucchini).
Several years ago I gave up on the plant. There wasn’t a problem with too many, it was very few. I had problems with squash vine borers. I never could figure out how to prevent them from decimating the vines so I just quit.
But this year I tried them again and you can see from this one plant that the Lord has blessed us with a load of zucchini again. We’re having them sauted and grilled, giving them away and Sharon’s making zucchini bread. It is a great blessing so if you need some let me know. I’m not sure where the squash vine borers are, but I’m thankful they haven’t found their way back yet.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.” Proverbs 3:5-10
Thank the Lord for plants full of zucchini!
