Yup it's that time of year. The time when virtually ever friend or family member with a garden starts pushing their high yield of zucchini on us. You can't seem to stop by for a summer visit without leaving with an armful.

The question is, how come it's always zucchini? What is it with friggin' the zucchini!? Always way too much!

And what's the solution for your cheery gardening pals? Make sure no visitor leaves the house without a big Hanny's bag full. Hey, how 'bout throwin' in a summer squash too. Mix it up a little.
