"The first zucchini I ever saw I killed it with a hoe."
Last winter 'on purpose' meant growing parthenocarpic zucchini and building a house of PVC and tulle. The PVC and tulle are widely available and not too expensive. The zucchini seeds had to be sent for and arrived in the mail only after i promised a ridicuous sum for postage to a certain company doing business west of the Cascades. In time, zucchini were harvested. The house was not pretty but it was a success! Still, i felt i could do better.
