Fun Fact Friday - Zucchini
This week we veer a little from the bees and look at zucchini. It appears I've planted far more zucchini than I know what to do with right now. I've cooked a fair amount of zucchini in my time but have always kept it simple. So as with everything I've been researching and looking at different options and as I do I've come across some fun to me facts.
