“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.” ― May Sarton 

August 8th was National Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day. And if you are like us, you still have few zucchinis left from your home garden (or an over enthusiastic trip to the farmers market) to surprise your unsuspecting friends, neighbors, and family with. In honor of this unique (and delicious) holiday, this week share resources and recipes featuring this summer staple.
