Summer squash harvest - Twins!
« on: July 18, 2008, 11:39:06 AM »
I was out picking my summer squash patch (I've made a vow to find no baseball bats out there this season!) and found this:

Pretty neat!   I'll have to harvest them separately, the big one will be way too big, I'll bet, before the little one is ready.

I'm picking them at about six to eight inches (tops!), and they are wonderful.  Here's a photo from my harvest the other day:

I buy a summer squash collection from The Cook's Garden every year, and have been pleased with the combo.  I didn't used to like summer squash of any kind, at all, I've always grown it for my neighbors, in particular my elderly next door neighbor, she loves them.  But if I get them young, before the seed cavity gets all gushy, I find them quite nice, now.  Sauteed in a little butter or olive oil, even without any seasoning, they're delish!
