I noticed the prices here are also higher.  Maybe too much rain this year?

Your neighbors may not be in the sharing mood. I stopped at a friends garden Wednesday to check his produce amd he also had Cameras to learn who was picking the produce. Gardening is a lot ot time and money

At our Farmer's Market here in Oregon, OH, they are loaded with Zuchinni!!  And----the price is nice and low!  We have had an abundance of rain in the past three months....that could have something to do with it, I think.

GRANA here;
My neighbors have always hared their abundance of zuchini in return for my homemade brownies; which I bked for them &  Y hubby even when I was recovering from surgery, they alsod donated some to the SR center or food bank  &some just got tossed  away.
Hubby read something online about a blight on zuchinni  this yearFrownThe blight aso affects restaurant salad mixes, but maybe that's just around here??????????
