Decorating with zucchini

Each harvest season I’m reminded that I plant too much zucchini.

And reminded of the memorable Prairie Home Companion story that the only time folks lock their doors in the fictitious town of Lake Woebegone is when the zucchini harvest is in. Else you find your car full of extra produce when you return from church!

In addition to bartering much of our extra produce away (we set up a new weekly live barter session with friends right before our local farmers’ market), we’re now decorating our stairwells with it. Pictured here is a fun mix of french zucchini (looks like green pumpkins) and yellow cucumbers.
