Every gardener who has grown zucchini knows that this time of year vines go crazy producing hundreds of tiny squash. They quickly grow to gargantuan size if not picked. That’s why Pennsylvanian Tom Roy designated August 8 as National Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day.
Anyone who has grown zucchini before knows that you can quickly end up with a flood of summer squash, and all of the zucchini recipes in the world aren't enough to use it up while fresh. Sure, you can freeze some for later, but your plants may still produce faster than you can pack away the bounty. Overabundant supplies of zucchini have often driven overwhelmed gardeners to share their wealth with friends and neighbors, sometimes to the point where even your besties would run if they saw you coming with more. So of course there's an entire holiday dedicated to surreptitiously pawning off your produce: National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day is held on August 8 every year, and it's the best light-hearted way to celebrate this prolific summer veggie.
