National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Front Porch Day 2011

National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day is on Monday August 8, 2011. Have you ever heard of this celebration? I hadn't, but growing up with a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who grew bushels and bushels of zucchini, I was aware of those big paper bags of zucchini that got left on neighbors' front porches every August and September. What I did not know is that there is an entire day (or night, if you're really sneaky) devoted to leaving the abundance of zucchini we grow on our neighbors front porches!

What do you do if you wake up tomorrow morning and find a big paper sack filled with zucchini on your front porch? You can make many things, and then send your neighbor a thank you note for all the free zucchini you got to enjoy.
