I’m really annoyed with the squash vine borers that destroyed my gorgeous crop of spaghetti squash. I ended up getting two or three, that’s it. I also got two acorn squashes before the borers got that vine.
What I loved about those is that they were free. I saved the seeds from squash I bought in late winter and planted some, and suddenly, I had all these beautiful squashes forming.
I even had one that crossed between the two! See the long green melon-looking thing? That is the cross.
That is a big red pimiento pepper and also a tomato that I grew from seed. I am loving the ‘grow from seed’ thing. It’s like doing magic.
While I’m at it, this is something I cooked in May using squash, green onions and herbs from my garden, sliced and layered with potatoes. Unfortunately I can’t find the recipe again to share with you. Experiment, and yours will end up better than this one, anyway. The flavors were underseasoned for my preference. I would have added more onions and probably some garlic or something stronger than the fresh thyme.
That iron skillet was originally my grandmother’s.
