My wife and I are harvesting too many zuchinni's this year. This is the first year we have tried your seeds. I must say that I over-estimated the number of plants this year. My estimate was based on the less-than-spectacular results from last year's plants from "another" producer. How many plants do you recommend for two people? Can zucchini's be frozen for later consumption?

You can stop the production of squash by pinching out the tips of the vines. Zucchini is such a prolific plant that two or three plants will probably keep you in a season's worth of 5-6 inch squash. Share the remainder with neighbors - but beware - if they see you coming they may hide! Zucchini doesn't freeze or can well (it's 90% water), but you can grate it and freeze it for use in casseroles or zucchini bread.
