This fact sheet has specifics for most fresh vegetables - let me know if you need additional information to barlage.7@osu.edu. http://wayne.osu.edu/topics/family-and-consumer-sciences/healthy-people-1/Garden%20to%20Table%20-%20...

One idea with zucchini is to go ahead and pick it, clean it, and shred it into the size you will use for your zucchini bread recipe (mine is 2 cups). Then freeze those bags to pull out and prepare bread or muffins at a later time.
