Could the zucchini gun surpass the potato gun? 💪

This bugger was hiding in plain sight - yet neither I, nor any of my friends saw it! LOL.

It weighs 7 lb. 6 oz.

Holy moly!!!

LOL, it looks like I am going to shoot myself in the foot with this thing.

And all I can hear in my head is my mother saying "you are going to put someones eye out with that thing".

    I'm wondering: Do you have to hold your mouth in a certain way to hit your target like you do with a tater gun?

    And, Zucchini bread!!! and lots of it. yeah

    That zucchini ended up being delicious! I mean really... it was good. Just a tad bit firmer than a smaller zuke which I actually liked better.

    OMG the flavor...

    I just can't believe that other people aren't growing food. They are so missing out!

    I see the 'strong arm' emoji in your title, and I am thinking another vegetable of import in the battle towards self sufficiency is the rather bulky bombs of squash we grew this year. You can see they require some strength to launch, but what a whopper of impact they make when you do. (If you can - lol)

    In the kitchen, we need to use an axe to get inside. They are so flavourful and sweet though. OMG. We eat squash every day one way or another in the winter and do so instead of white potatoes.

    Merry Christmas from British Columbia

    @solarnoon.aspen Merry Christmas. That is a beautiful squash! Is is a hubbard?

  • solarnoon.aspensolarnoon.aspen Posts: 206 ✭✭✭

    Yes, a Blue Hubbard. We grew Blue and Green Hubbards this year and a few Kuri for a total of 650 pounds. There are just two of us plus our dog and chickens, so we'll see how much we consume over the next few months. The one in the photo is over 50 pounds. It was a little difficult getting it up stairs to it's storage room. LOL
