OK....while I perfectly understand the Bible's reference that "I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth," I cannot help being proud of my squash diversity and cuteness...
I've always grown, not, make that "TRIED to grow" (and was successful many, but not all years), yellow and zucchini squash...
But THIS year I actually planted some spaghetti squash, some butternut squash, and some acorn squash.... I'm fairly new to cooking these kinds of squash, but have found some delicious ways to prepare and serve them, so I figured, "How different can it be??"
Well, they took a little longer to sprout and get going, but just look at what I have on the plants right now, the cutest, most adorable little squashes you have ever seen!
They start out tiny just on the stem side of the fairly large yellow squash bloom, and then before you know it, they are golfball size... oh they are PRECIOUS!
It makes me smile just to look at them!
