Growing Zucchini - Video


Summary: Zucchini is a wonderful and easy addition to any home vegetable garden. Here is how you too can have some wonderful zucchini in your next home vegetable garden.

The following is the transcript of the video:

Zucchini is the delicious and simple addition to any garden. You want to make sure that you plant the zucchini deep enough, and it has a lot of sunshine, but that you don't give it too much water.

Zucchini is a very easy plant to grow, but there are some things that you should do to help it grow. Zucchini is a very forgiving plant, but you have to remember that it has to have a lot of sunshine. And, another thing is that it needs to be planted fairly deep in the ground.

Now you don't have to worry about having competition with diseases or pests because basically, they don't like it as much as we do. You do have to worry about getting mildew on your zucchini. If mildew does pop up, you can treat it with systemic fungicide.

If you want a great treat, you can try eating your zucchini early, before the buds blossom. What you do is you can saute it in butter, or you can deep fry it, and put some spices on it. It just tastes delicious.
