This year I’ve been enjoying a bountiful harvest of garden crops thanks to my vermicomposting trenches. Only problem I’m going to have is trying to put all my produce to good use (have been giving a lot of it away as well).
I had been enjoying lots of small zucchinis on the BBQ earlier this summer, but then kinda let the plants go wild. In no time at all I ended up with a bunch of monsters (I can assure you that the picture above doesn’t do them any justice). While certainly impressive, I’m not really sure what to do with them – when they are that big I don’t really enjoy them as much on the BBQ. If anyone has any yummy recipes the for big zucchinis I’d certainly love to hear about them.
Just as an aside – for all of you out there with your own vermicomposting biz (or for those of you thinking about getting into it), I highly recommend growing lots of stuff with vermicompost so you can show your customers when they come to pick up worms/vermicompost. I had some people come by on the weekend, one of them being an avid organic gardener (ie she is much more talented at gardening than myself), and they were blown away. I had the zucchinis sitting in a wheelbarrow (hadn’t even planned to point them out) and when the gentleman spotted them he ran over for a closer look. He couldn’t believe how big some of them were. I sent them home with one, along with a bunch of nice tomatoes – yet another great advantage of having all this produce available when selling worms. Obviously these people were already intending to purchase worms, but I bet they’ll tell even more people about my business based on their visit here.
