Zucchini and Summer Squash

zucchiniThe Basics

We grow successions of these throughout the summer to keep you in good supply. The earliest batches are raised under floating row cover to warm the plants and get the earliest crops.

There might be some fun/wild varieties as the season progresses, including stripes and different shapes.

Cooking Tips

Grilled summer squash or zucchini make an excellent addition to pizza or pasta sauce.

Layering zucchini with thinly sliced potatoes and fresh pesto is a simple baked side dish.

Storage Tips

Can be left on a cool countertop wrapped loosely in cloth, or placed in fridge to extend shelf life up to one week. Even if limp, summer squash can be roasted, fried, or sauteed.

Frozen zucchini will last for up to 10 months. Shred and store in serving-size portions.
