When we got back from Michigan after being away for more than a week, I pulled this enormous zucchini from the garden. The bananas - which I should note are pretty big themselves - should give you some idea of the size of this thing. I've had mixed results with big vegetables. Sometimes they taste good, other times the size works against the vegetable and loses some of it's flavor.
Too bad the Bird isn't eating quite yet. Back a few years, the Babe was getting into soft foods like pureed vegetables right around the time we were pulling these things from the garden. She ate home-grown for a while. We'll have to wait until next summer for her younger sister.
