When I was young, my mother had this wonderful little garden on the side of our house. I used to love watching the garden grow each summer, and daily trips out to pick fresh tomatoes, snap peas and zucchini were a highlight. I remember spending my summer days outside, playing with friends, and we’d snack on sugar snap peas, fresh from the garden, as we played. The zucchini always fascinated me, though, because there were some years when nothing would grow, and others when we’d end up with zucchini as long as our arms, that seemed to weigh as much as a small child. My mom would make zucchini bread after zucchini bread after zucchini bread, and we’d laugh at the size of our ginormous zucchini. They were like veggie snacks for giants.
