Squash Success!

Despite the reputation of summer squash as an over exuberant producer, I have never had much luck. There is not enough for me, forget leaving baskets on neighbor's porches! This year I finally did something right--maybe it was the Garden-tone?

This was the last of my lemon squash seed, which I pretty much just planted to get rid of it. Funny how that works.

There are some other squash varieties in this bed, and they will all eventually succumb to powdery mildew, but I am encouraged to keep trying with squash. Even though it is so easy to grab at the farmers' market, I like growing unusual varieties of squash, after last having success with north Georgia candy roaster, a variety somewhat similar to candy roaster. Next year, I have some Baker Creek specials in store.
