Zucchini Nascar

Anyone who has a vegetable garden here or who has friends with a garden knows the problems with zucchini. As the end of summer approaches, the zucchini get larger and more numerous. Everybody has zucchini and delivers all their excess to their friends, who are unloading their extra tons of zucchini on other people and so on.... A few lucky zucchini, however, end up transformed into race cars for the Vic West Zucchini Nascar event. One fine vehicle is pictured above having a pit stop. And racers at the starting line can be seen on the right. Unlike the morbidly competitive parent Nascar event, in these races everyone wins. The final event of the annual Vic West Corn Roast is the raffle draw and below is a photo of the event's Master of Ceremonies, Mike Raymer, attempting (unsuccessfully) to cajole local children to draw HIS ticket stub.

What a great idea for excess zucchini!! A friend of mine started a garden last year and I was the "victim" of lots of loaves and muffins - but she lives in Burnaby so I'm not getting any this year.

Brilliant! I'll have to remember that for next year, and create a zucchini nascar party of our own! Beautiful photos of Victoria, also. I haven't been there in ages and feel the urge to visit again.
