Too many trombocinos

During our long, hot dry spell in January most of the summer vegetable crop died. Cucumbers and Zucchinis wilted and vanished into dust. After s light shower of rain in late January two of the Trombocino vines reemerged. With good rain in February and March they have grown into the most enourmous vines and are cropping prolifically. They are pleasant too eat, firmer than a Zucchini and less watery, nice steamed or grated through pasta. They also make good fritters.
We have given lots away, frozen some and eaten them practically every day for two months.
i am sick of the sight of them.
This is yesterdays harvest!

A laundry basket full!
I will have to find some more ways to use them. Maybe I can turn them into soup and freeze them.
