Somebody remind me to plant fewer squash next year, okay? This is what I picked tonight.
I’m sure there are more zucchini lurking in the vines, but it was getting dark (the only time it’s not 120° out) and they were well camouflaged, as my 5 year old would say. And yes, sadly, that is how our grass looks throughout the yard. Still no rain here, and the sprinkler simply can’t keep up. We are waving the white flag.
My daughter’s favorite fajitas will soon be a frequent summer meal, as will stuffed peppers. Yum!
I’m just thrilled to have something to harvest other than squash and zucchini!
Speaking of squash, this is a new-to-me variety, Texas Indian Moschata Squash. I have no idea how to fix it or what we’re going to do with it, but I’m sure it’s nothing that a few Swagbucks searches can’t figure out.
For those who noticed, why yes, that is growing in the grass and weeds. We really did try to lay straw down to prevent weeds, but we had no idea how the squash and pumpkins would take over the world! See?!
The vines are pretty much barreling over and crushing the life out of our pampas grass. Whoops!
And now that I have proven, once again, my gardening cluelessness, I get to display the “gardening guide” button. Forgive me.
Ready to link up your gardening progress? Before you do, be sure to take a look at what Smockity Frocks and her kiddos are feasting on out of their garden. Sadly, Phoebe from Getting Freedom won’t be joining us this week. She is with her mother, who is battling her spreading cancer.
Please note, our next gardening link up will be Wednesday, August 31, as we move to monthly linkies instead of weekly. You only need so many photos of my squash and dying grass!
