I’ve been remiss in updating. My squash got attacked by squash borers, aphids and squash bugs. I have no idea which happened first, but suddenly they all were pitiful and two moments later–dead.
A moment of silence, please.

That was a very large patty-pan Bennings Light Green squash! It snuck up on me. But it was tender and had such a rich flavor. I will definitely be planting a lot of those next year. In order to really taste the squash, this time I grilled them with just some Maldon Sea Salt Flakes and freshly ground pepper, along with a spritz or three of olive oil. That is a George with it, and a small George that didn’t get pollinated well enough. I do need to figure out what is causing that.
Unfortunately I don’t have a pretty picture–or any picture–of the grilled squash.
I ate it.
And it was wonderful.
I continue to bring in peppers. I think the tomatoes are done until the nights get a bit cooler again. I pick a few okra every day, and will soon have enough to cook. (I only have two okra plants–bad planning.) And my eggplant is blooming and babies are forming.
