    You know, I have never lived in the midwest but I grew up where Texas begins to turn to sand and my gosh, melons of every kind and squashes grew like mad. I miss the free watermelon and cantaloupe.

    This was my summer job from about 14 years old until I left high school, along with workin' black angus for the same folks. Hard work, but a different kind of responsibility.

    Zukes are probably okay...but a banana leaves an aroma that keeps on giving;).

    Was visiting kids/grandkids yesterday at middle daughter Becky's place. Both Jen and Becky have gardens, while youngest daughter Hannah lives in a place with a homeowners assoc. Anyway, Becky's neighbor also has a garden. Apparently the other day the neighbor knocked on Becky's door and was standing there with a nice basket of fresh garden tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, potatoes and zucchinis.

    Lovely gesture, despite Becky already having more from her own garden than she can deal with. So now I have more than I need of pretty much everything for the foreseeable future. lol

    When we lived in SMT (Southern Middle Tennessee), I planted a 50' X 50' garden.

    The first year was a miss...nothing grew but weeds. I sent off a soil sample and amended per their recommendations.

    The second year, we were contemplating violating HOA zucchini-giving restrictions. 45 zucchini plants can produce enough to feed a small country.

    45 zucchini plants?! Good lord are you insane? One is enough for most families, two if you want to make zucchini bread several times per week.

    Decades ago, little Alliton at the Farm Bureau Co-Op told me "Now you plant THREE zucchini seeds. That way the odds are you get at least one female and one male that will pollinate. Plant more and you'll have a million zucchini you don't know what to do with."

    Do that, and after they start to set fruit you yank out one or two plants. One plant will overwhelm your refrigerator. I've overplanted and had zucs grow as big as torpedos because I had no use for them.

    I was a neophyte gardener with delusions of grandeur. We moved from a house with no garden space to 2 acres of empty pastureland. Brand new Troy-bilt 5hp tiller, etc. I never gave a thought to yield. I simply planted full 50' rows of everything. 45 tomato plants, masses of carrots, yellow squash, broccoli, green beans, corn (the corn never did well for some reason).

    The worst thing was that about 3 months after harvest, our freezer died while we were gone for a week. A freezer full of defrosted zucchini, green beans, etc. All had to be thrown away. Miz Diane was in tears but I was secretly thankful I didn't have to eventually eat my way thru all that. When we moved, 10 yrs later, we still had cases of canned zucchini relish and tomatoes (and sauce) from that year.

    The next year, I went to raised beds with only a few plants. Gave away my tiller.
