Growing zucchini with kids is a lot of fun. The plants grow HUGE and kids can help pollinate the flowers to help you have a successful harvest! I usually cut the zucchini off the plant and let the kids “pick” them up as they are hard to remove without tools. The only bummer is that they are not great to eat raw out in the garden (in our opinion)!
Although I would love to have room in a freezer for zucchini breads and muffins, I just don’t have the space. SO, I grate, blanch, cool, and freeze my zucchini in 1 and 2 cup freezer bags full. Then, I am able to bake with it all year round!
