Squash


I am growing Crookneck Squash. I had always assumed that all of the squash flowers turned into baby squash...not so. There have been many blooms but only one has grown into a squash. I had thought that you would have to pick the buds to make squash flower soup or stuffed squash blossoms and that it would be a waste of the squash. As it turns out there are probably 10 flowers to one small squash that developed...hmmm interesting.

I know, right?!

Yes, all by themselves they grew...I did nothing but give them water. Can you believe it. I got this plant a couple years ago at that same orchid farm in Santa Barbara. They lasted for about 6 weeks, full bright blooms. I wish they all grew like that but patience is the key with these. Just like getting a new job after you've been laid off...just have to hang in and keep plugging away at it!!! And curse your old boss, but not the plant.
