Cookie and the Zucchini

30 Jul

I’ve been getting a lot of zucchini from the garden.  That’s not a surprise, but I noticed my mini-pumpkin was looking bad.

Then it moved to the cucumbers.

And now the zucchini are starting to look like they are wilting.  I hate squash vine borers.

You might recall that was half the reason I moved my garden up north.  Sky was the other half.

I am going to have to figure out the pesticide way to get rid of those things.  In the meantime, I’m using zucchini and I had a couple that I was going to bring in from the soap room when I remembered I hadn’t given Fionn his breakfast.

Fionn–he is doing much better.

I set the zucchini down on the barnyard side of the fence because Sky was on the other side.

I ran and got his food and gave it to him and turned around to see Cookie at the zucchini.

Cookie napping with her girls(Chiffon above and Marge in front).

By the time I got there, she had liberally sampled both of them.  This girl. It’s a good thing she’s cute and sweet.

I decided it wasn’t a big deal; although, it would have been nice if she had stuck with one and not just random bites all over them.  I cut the bites out and grated it to make bread for the people helping bale hay.  A double batch makes three loaves, and that would be perfect.

Half way through my recipe, it just didn’t seem right, so I looked at the top of the page and discovered I was making a double batch of zucchini brownies.

Well, that’s a lot of brownies, but I can’t complain because they are delicious.
