Dice the zucchini and sautee in just over half the olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Sautee the zucchini until browned, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan and place zucchini in a bowl and set aside.
Meanwhile, dice the yellow onion and then add to the pan with diced green onions and remaining olive oil. Reduce heat to medium and saute for 30 seconds.
Mince garlic and add to onions along with basil, bay leave, Italian seasoning, and salt. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Meanwhile, dice the tomatoes, carrot tops and parsley. Add to pan with wine and sautee another 2 minutes.
Dice the cucumber and add to the pan along with reserved zucchini. Simmer covered on medium-low for at least 20 minutes, ideally 60-90 minutes.
Remove bay leaf and ladle into servings. Optionally garnish with chive blossoms

- If you use standard cucumbers, peel the skins and discard. If you use English cucumbers, you can leave the skins on and keep them in the dish. I prefer a mix of both types of cucumbers in this dish.
