Hi Karen! I'm brand new here too but a quick internet search of Perth and gardening zones and I think you are in Zone 9. I'm a little jealous since here in zone 5/6 we only get about 100 days of outdoor growing, but we each do the best we can. I'd take some of your zucchinis! :)

oh and some thing good to make with zucchini is bread also, and soups. it can be frozen,canned, or even dried. if you have chickens they would love some too. I am currently buried under a blanket of snow so am very jealous of your garden.
