I don't mind having a glut of zucchini, it's one vegetable that we eat a lot of when it's fresh and I also have a couple of ways of preserving it that we enjoy eating throughout the rest of the year. Both the Romanesco and Tromba squashes are good dehydrated, some varieties of zucchini get bitter when dried, but both of these keep their good flavor. I use a lot of the dried zucchini in the frittatas that are Dave's favorite lunch item. It's also excellent in soup and cooked in a tomato sauce. The rehydrated zucchini has a nice texture, pleasantly al dente, not at all mushy like cooked fresh zucchini can be.

Melons. Total failure for 2016. I didn't find space for them in the garden until very late in the season but decided to take a chance since we were having a particularly warm fall. The plants grew and set melons, but it was definitely too late in the season to allow any to fully mature and ripen. That's one succession that I'm still refining.
There's still a few review posts to go, root vegetables are next.
