Average yield per zucchini plant
I am planning my sfg for next spring. Right now I am in containers. I have a couple of zuke plants crammed into an 18 gal sterilite so I am not sure if I am getting a good impression of the yield to expect with a 3'x3' area per zuke plant.
What kind of yields are you all getting on your zuke plants this summer? I know it will vary but if I can get an idea to give me a rough estimate I will know whether to plant one, two, or three zuke plants next summer. We can eat at least 2 per week, plus I would like to freeze some (either sliced and blanched, or if possible, shredded to make zucchini bread - or make and freeze the bread itself). So I guess 3-5 zukes per week would be a guess of what I am looking for.
(Right now in my 18 gal container, my two plants have produced two zukes this past week and two more should mature next week. Still waiting for it to "take off" like people say they do, if it will ever - might be too crowded.)
