By the time we picked it, it was far too woody to eat. But before I consigned it to the compost pile, I had a thought. It's almost Halloween. I've read that the original jack-o-lanterns were carved from turnips. So why not a zucchini?
What do you think? Scary enough for the trick-or-treaters?
Maybe we should hand out zucchini on Halloween instead of candy. Nah, that would be too scary.
