  1. What a wonderful and timely collection of recipes!! I’ve had trouble growing zukes out here in Mesa, AZ for the past four years or so and really suspect the increasing heat. Hand pollinating and everything. Seems to be a lack of female flowers. But there are gardeners here still able to grow it, and we’re nearing vacation time in WA state where there’s an abundance of this wonderful veggie. I’ll be sharing your link with them all. Thank you SO much!!
