Sweet and Sour Zucchini Pickles

Sweet and Sour Zucchini Pickles

You know how everyone makes zucchini jokes? About so many they are going Ninja at night and throwing them on neighbors porches? That doesn’t seem to happen here. Of all my plants, my summer squash I work the hardest with and often don’t a ton back. I think it just comes down to where we live and my personal green thumb. Having said that, this year I planted Bush Baby alongside the usual dark zukes and have found more success with it. From now on, Bush Baby will be my choice – and yes, the plants don’t spread as much and really do produce. Which meant I actually had enough to pickle recently! (And yes, I even gave my garden-less neighbor a lovely one over the fence)
