PostSubject: Growing zucchini   Sat Dec 10, 2011 6:44 am

Hi guys, a couple of months ago I planted some zucchini seeds for my bns so I don't need to buy zucchinis every week. I just checked one of the plants today and there's a massive zucchini growing off of it (It's almost longer than my forearm).
I'm going to blanch it because it'll probably rot before any of the bns finish it.
It's probably no longer very tasty when they get too big



In hindsight maybe this should've gone into the feeding time section.

Interestingly enough it disappears a lot faster than the supermarket bought zucchinis also the skin turns a yellowish colour when underwater for 5 hours whilst the supermarket ones always stay completely green.

That's because the ones at the supermarket are pumped full of chemicals lol!

the pepps seem to like the non chemical pumped ones better. I can actually catch them eating it whereas I never see them eating the supermarket ones.

Anyone who grows their own veg will tell you that it is better than what you can buy at the supermarket. Even BN's can tell the difference lol!

I have too many zucchinis now. My catfish still haven't finished the first one and I've got 4 other giant ones that I just cut off.

I'm giving them to my grandmas boyfriend because he likes stuffing them and eating them!

Definitely the best way to go. I have a veggie garden and grom my own Zucchinis as well as Tuscan Black Kale, Cabbage, Strawberries, Spinach and loads more that my BNs, Pepps and L numbers all love. Always goes so much quicker than anything I buy during winter from the supermarkets.

Congrats on the good result. Smile

A good tip is to put your water change water on the veggies too, they love that and grow all the better for it Wink
