My best friend is an avid gardener. I have, at this site, referred to her in the past as “a rapacious gardener.” I stand by that verdict.

Today she writes with an update on her gardens, both floral and vegetable:

We have lots of zucchini.

No!? Really?! You have “lots of zucchini”?

How . . . unusual.

I’m glad you’re not just around the corner, my friend, because I really, truly don’t need to wake up to grocery bags full of the annoyingly profligate green vegetable at my front door with the requisite cheery note about wanting to share your bounty with me.

That’s happened before. No, not from you, and that’s why we’re still friends, but from other, also decidedly rapacious, gardeners.
