Summer Squash

The summer squash is slowly starting to appear for the season. I have zuchini and yellow neck. Both types are easy to grow,and produce a lot of fruit.

You can start these as seed ahead of time, and transplant in mid May in the Ozarks. They will go into August, when you often get Squash bugs. They need to be picked when small. Once they grow real big, the skin gets tough. Those I save for seed or breads.

A standard all around fertilizer and plenty of water
make these take off. A well drained soil is good. Size will be the big issue, as these buggers get very large. One plant needs 16sq ft.

Later in the season, I'll add some recipes for squash. For now, we stir fry with onions, garlic, Greek Seasoning and a little Soy Sauce. Ya boy howdy!

We'll talk again soon,
