One Squash, Two Squash . . .

Our squash is finally coming in!! 
Everything is late this year due to the cool spring;
however, we are in a hot period now and things
are starting to happen!

I normally plant enough squash to feed an army,
only because my seeds all come up, every one of them.
This year I selected plants, only two, so I would have
two nice plants rather than 10.

Well, the two pots each had thee seeds that "took"
and I couldn't just pick the strongest and throw the
rest away.  What if the two I chose didn't make it?
So, I planted all of them and figured that the weak
ones would die a natural death.

I was wrong.
I now have five or six plants.
Back to square one.

So, what to do?
Grilled squash, pickled squash, sliced and pan fried squash . . .

I saw this and thought I'd give it a try.

Please go to the link on the photo credit
to see the ingredients.

I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Looks like your summer will be a bit "squashy" from here on!

I got bunches of tomatoes out of our garden. But not one squash or pepper. Not one watermelon. We even bought the plants already growing, and it still didn't work.

Your squash look good, and that food you made is very enticing!

I am always a complete failure at watermelon and our peppers are too shady or just slow this year. I always do great with those little sugar pumpkins that you bake for pumpkin bread or pies but the bees took their place this year. I'll have to make a new bed.

I planted zucchini and patty pan squash. I wish the small yellow squash was more prolific and the zucchini is bit less. - Margy
