Gadzukes

When doing IB Economics I remember learning about the East Coast zucchini wars: everyone's gardens produce so many that people were desperate to get rid of them, sometimes leaving enormous piles of unwanted harvest on each other's doorsteps in the dead of night. The rare case where demand is in fact negative! Surely this was an urban (indeed suburban!) legend, I thought: nothing grows that fast! Well, behold what the zucchini plants in the half-bed I'm using at the community garden have got up to in a mere two weeks! (Notice the first squash blossom at lower right, cracking a Little Shop of Horrors grin.)
