Today Bo Simpson teaches us how to properly harvest zucchini. Contrary to yellow squash, which can be simply twisted off the plant, zucchini must be harvested with a knife in order to ensure that the stem does not separate from the zucchini leaving exposed flesh that will quickly rot.
In this video, Farmer Josh harvests the first yellow straightneck squash from the Mary Bowdon Community Garden and explains the proper way to harvest this type of squash. You can find lots more information about how to grow healthy vegetables by browsing our Educate page, or by visiting the Big Country Master Gardeners or AgriLife Vegetable Gardening Guide
In this video, Farmer Josh takes us on a tour of the Mary Bowdon Community Garden. Then Bo Simpson demonstrates how to harvest a zucchini for optimal storage.
