It doesn't have to be zucchini. If you're harvesting more tomatoes than you can eat, you can sneak tomatoes onto a porch or two, instead. Any surplus garden produce can be gladly given away!
It's especially fun to surprise people with gifts or cards or other happy things—but surprises can be tricky. Make sure that you are giving enough zucchini to be a happy surprise—but not so many that it's a chore to move the squash to the kitchen or trash can!
You can also cook up your garden surplus: can it, or bake yummy treats. Give beautiful jars of cooked tomatoes, zucchini pickles, or zucchini muffins, maybe, instead of the raw veggies and fruit.
