The Squash and Zucchini have been the stars of the story recently. Lauren and I planted the seeds that we got from Ford's ( of course ) in mounds at the beginning of April. Now the plants are huge creeping mounds, and the fruits are covering our countertops. We started harvesting at the end of May, and we've been getting out there every couple of days for more. Both of our parents have received recent squash gifts, we gave some to the people who own the field where we want to get married, and we've been eating enough to turn our poo yellow.
Yesterday I saw the first squash beetle of the year. The evil cousins of ladybugs will end up getting the best of our plants in a few weeks. But for now I'll pick off all the bugs and eggs I can find, and we'll eat squash in everything.
