Okay another zucchini question. I know, I know all I ever talk about is zucchini (or beans), but this is serious. I now have plants that have small zucchini's that I hand pollinated this morning. Is now the time to start new hills growing so that in 30 or 45 days when these play out I have more fresh zucchini? I never knew that they only produced for 30 or 45 days, I just read this on another gardening forum. Thanks, Melissa Picture of my zucchini's, my babies. As you can see there is room to plant another hill or two. I want to maintain two hills all summer long. I've been eating a grilled zucchini (from the failed barrel experiment) every night for a week now. I have three Ichabod Eggplants ready and two Green Bell peppers and I want to make a stir fry this weekend. Yummy!!!! I will never tire of zucchini.
