ONE days harvest! I am so sick of eating summer squash!
This is the year of the squash! We planted several varieties, but ONE has managed to take over nearly our entire back yard... Zucchino Rampicante Squash.
It IS delicious. It is firmer than regular zucchini, and it is hilarious and slightly pornographic (we like to wear the big ones around our necks while we stroke the swollen bulb at the end for comedic effect).
I was happy to see OTHER neighbors with squash gone wild. I suppose it likes the super wet summer we've had.
Tonight I shall make stuffed squash blossoms. We'll see if we can't stop the reproduction for a few days!
Here is our plant. Taking over the world. Look for it in your neck of the woods any day now...
