August 8, Sneak Some Zucchini onto
Your Neighbor's Porch

Due to overzealous planting of zucchini, people are asked to drop off baskets of squash on neighbors’ door-steps. Annually, August 8.

Hot weather brings an abundance of summer squash. Yellow crookneck, straight neck, zucchini, pattypan and Mediterranean are some of the popular varieties.
