This is a part of the 2021 4-H Summer Learning Series.

While lots of folks might grow zucchinis in Maine, have you ever grown one that’s square? Have you ever made zucchini bread? It’s a great solution to “What do I do with that 2 ft. long zucchini.” Plus, we’ll be having a contest where we will judge the “Biggest” zucchini, the “Smallest” zucchini, and the “Most Unusual Shaped” zucchini. We’ll have lots of helpful growing tips, tips for dealing with insects, as well as recipes you can try. And don’t forget–you can always follow that good old Maine tradition–giving away those excess zucchinis. Registration deadline for participants who need seeds:  June 8; for participants who have their own seeds, the registration deadline is June 14.

Open to all Maine youth of all ages
