Zucchini House

It's not uncommon to see vegetables growing in front yards, especially if that's the sunny side of the house. But I have never seen a yard devoted only to zucchini, edge to edge, from front sidewalk all the way up to the house. What plans the owner must have, from fiori di zucca to ratatouille, baked, grilled, fried, transformed into boats, cut into zoodles, hidden in zucchini bread. The plants look so healthy. How will this optimistic gardener keep up? If, later in the summer, neighbors find zucchini left on their porches, there will be no doubt where it came from.
