I agree George.  When I plant summer squashes I plant 25 of each variety, 
including zucchini.  I'm usually lucky enough to harvest half a dozen baby 
zucchini, 3 or 4 yellow crookneck and 1 patty pan before they get frost killed.  
If the constata romanesco is so agressive perhaps it would grow here quickly 
even with our cool nights.
