|Here it is playing hide and seek.|
I was poking around to see if there were any bees and noticed it hiding under some stems. I have not seen a lot of bees around the squash patch so this was a pleasant surprise. I have about 4 zukes that have aborted because of lack of pollination.

Distinctive Italian zucchini, prominently ribbed. Medium gray-green, with pale green flecks and ribs. Big, large-leafed bush with only about half the yield of hybrids, but much better tasting; clearly better textured, nutty, and delicious, raw or cooked. Also a good producer of heavy male blossom buds for cooking
While I have not tasted it yet, their description of the leaf and blossoms is spot on. Hopefully we will get quite a few zucchinis off these plants before they succumb to squash vine borers (more on those in a future post).
Are you getting anything out of the garden yet?
