It's June 1st, but it's not too late to plant zucchini seeds! Our Summer Squash Black Beauty Zucchini produces a huge crop of tender zucchini squash during the summer - and they are super fast growing, they start to harvest in 55 days! We direct sow the seeds in mounds in the garden, zucchini plants grow fast and don't like to get root bound, so starting them indoors is unnecessary.
Is it too late to plant seeds?
Think: lettuce, radishes, carrots, beets...
We like to stuff them with hummus or cheese and garlic, hot pepper flakes, and basil then dunk them in a simple flour and soda water batter and fry in a cast iron skillet. YUM! See recipe lower below...
(zucchini, pumpkin, or squash flowers)
Fresh Basil and Oregano or Sage Leaves (1/2 cup+)
Hummus (homemade or store-bought)
Ricotta Cheese (1 cup+)
Diced Garlic (3+ cloves)
Salt and pepper to taste
Bake: Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
~ Or ~
Pan fry them: Fry the blossoms in a cast iron skillet with oil, flip to brown both sides.
