    Round?!? Is that a specific variety? We’re getting our plethora of huge, normal shaped zuc’s here in the bay area, right on schedule.

    Wonder if that netting is doing anything for aphids and mildew. 🙂

    Nice work, keep it going, looking forward to virtual more from your dirt.

    Yes, round is a thing. I was tempted to answer your comment a different way, however. Something about theoretical physicists trying to grow regular squash but they come out spherical every time. And massless…

    …also incompresible, in equilibrium, of uniform density…

    Oh, and the netting? Raccoons, and Skunks. A battle I’ve won for a while. Until I find out that the aphids and mildew were sent by them.

    Then there’s the squirrels, rats and possums…. but that’s a different battle.

    …Sigh.

    Massless zucchini? Not in this universe. These things accumulate mass in the blink of an eye. Black holes of the backyard garden. Don’t stray too close, lest you cross the zuc event horizon!

    Speaking of possums, we haven’t seen one in our yard in quite some time. Perhaps they were absorbed into the infinite density of the monster zuc?

    Yes, you did say spherical, not round. My bad, I should know better, I teach that difference to my 10 year old daughter, and here I am…
