Last year I posted a blog about an 8 ball squash which a friend gave me. I had never seen one before, and on my quest to try new things I was happy to try it. It tasted just like a regular zucchini.
This year while looking for plants to add to my garden I found the yellow squash variety called just a ball squash. Of course I had to grow some so I picked them up and set up a small raised garden and picked up some long poles and deer fencing. I have a problem with all kinds of creatures this type of siding seemed best. I'm happy to say so far so good.
I picked my first Ball squash and my friend gave me another 8 ball. Last night I whipped up some filling and filled those two squash plus a couple of peppers. It is cooking in my Crockpot as I type and I'm looking forward to a nice tasty dinner tonight.
I used ground turkey, rice, Ro Tel, onion and salt & pepper. I covered it with more diced tomatoes. I think it will be quite tasty and healthy too! Here is a picture of my squash while I was in the process of making it.
