Friday Harvest Brag :o)

I'm pleased to report that after the Rains ..the Bees came :o) and they pollinated the squash and we had a Harvest :o) Those first two large Zucchini were almost missed ( we were so used to not seeing anything we began taking it for granted we'd get nothing). Surprise. Surprise :o)
That Zucchini looked like it was hard, but the knife went through it like butter ..in fact all of it was soft.
It was just too much to eat for one meal ( Cecil can eat a lot of it, but it was more than he could handle too). So I cooked the first two and one of the smaller ones with onions and spices I use and put the rest in a freezer bag for another meal.. I am so thankful that we were able to grow our own squash and that the bees came back to pollinate and make it possible..I couldn't see myself walking around with a cue tip pollinating a flower to produce. I couldn't wait for Harvest Monday to post about it..Since I moaned and groaned about not having something :o)..I've been blessed, again :o)

I don't remember how I found your blog, but the first picture I saw was the one of your fish fry. I could almost taste the fish. This pic is one of my favorite dishes. Umm,umm, good. Can you tell I like to eat???

Oh yipee!!! Congrats Ginny! Now you will probably have more squash then you can handle! I've been playing a lot of cupid at the plots this week.....I just want to make sure that I get some squash in case of the dreaded SVB's!

Annie's Granny, if you want a taste you have to beat Cecil to the pot :o) I always serve myself first , if not I may not get to get seconds :o) They were good too:o)
