In a vegetable garden that’s been kind of a disappointment, this zucchini squash is a real standout

Record heat, record cold, drought, rampaging ground squirrels — halfway through 2022, and the vegetable garden has been, at best, a mixed bag.

One bright spot is this Zucchini, Cashflow. Not only is the plant relatively compact, but it also grows upright, almost like a tree. What’s more, unlike other types of zukes, if you don’t pick the fruit right away (which I rarely do), they don’t keep growing until they’re the size of baseball bats. Rather they top out at 8 to 9-inches and the plant goes on to flower again.

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve pulled a dozen smooth and symmetrical zucchinis off of it, and it doesn’t look like it’s even getting close to calling it quits. There’s already four new fruit and a fifth one flowering now.

Definitely a really productive, low maintenance vegetable. I highly recommend it.

(Oh, and did I mention the seed was from 2012?)
