I read this online: Zucchini grows best when exposed to 6 – 8 hours of direct sunlight each day.
Well, we've not had very many of those days in past weeks, and yet, this is the best year for zucchini I've had in ages and ages; maybe ever since we moved here in 1981. It doesn't care how soggy the ground is. It doesn't even care that I chop off those prickly leaves often so I can reach in without pain. It doesn't care that the plants are too close together. All I know is I'm happy, happy, happy, as Emeril says. I've eaten a lot and frozen a lot. And made that cake! The doors all stick, the cellar is wet, but I have zucchini!
