I picked my first squash today. Here is a picture of a little baby Ronde de Nice zucchini. Isn't it cute? I think I am going to bake it with a tomato, Parmesan cheese, and garlic.
This is the first year we have grown squash, beans, and corn together in the three sisters style. It is working out fantastic. I stink at growing corn and the squash bugs usually get my plants after just a few fruits are picked. Not so this year, the corn is gorgeous, the squash bugs are confused, and the beans are doing great as usual.
We have to leave the corn in after it produces because it is supporting the beans. This fall, after everything is done, we will pull them out and make a scarecrow from the cornstalks.
Kids love beautiful gardens, too...
