I planted seven zucchini plants in my high tunnel; what was I thinking? Actually I was thinking Food Bank, friends, and freezer. One of the real pleasures of gardening is the sharing. When it comes time to use or preserve your zucchini, broccoli, or cabbage, we have publications for that.
The free publications include “Zucchini from A to Z”, “Best of Broccoli”, and “Sauerkraut”. The 15-page zucchini publication has information on preserving as well as using it in main dishes, side dishes, soups, breads, salads, and desserts. The broccoli publication has instructions for freezing and recipes. “Sauerkraut” is all about how to make sauerkraut and a few recipes for using it.
