My First Zucchini!

Taaa daaaaa!!!

The days to maturity of the zucchini I planted is 50 days. I put the seeds in a pot on July 3rd and harvested a 9 inch long zucchini on Sep 12. That’s 71 days…I probably should have picked this one a few days ago, but oh well…

It took a bit longer than I was expecting, and to be honest, the zucchini plants haven’t been as productive as I’d hoped, but I’m not complaining. There’s room for improvement, but I have to start somewhere, and one ripe zucchini is a win in my book!

  1. Congrats! How did it taste?
    I see you have powdery mildew (it overwinters in the soil and splashes up on the leaves).
    Here’s a recipe to treat it:
    Combine one tablespoon baking soda and one-half teaspoon of liquid, non-detergent soap with one gallon of water, and spray the mixture liberally on the plants.

    1. It was nearly perfect! I used a vegetable peeler to shave slices it into a salad. Thanks for the recipe for powdery mildew treatment. What’s an example of a non-detergent soap?
