This is the first year I have grown spaghetti squash. I planted them because someone gave me a packet of seeds. I had no idea if they would even grow, but despite the weak soil, they are thriving and taking over my garden. The vines have grown over the row of peas on one side and over the row of beans on the other. They have even started climbing over the fence!
We have two that are almost ready, and many more coming. I will have to find some new ways to eat them (besides the traditional bake, shred, and cover with butter, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese). I have to also mention that all the kids ate a huge plateful of sauteed zucchini and onions for dinner tonight. Anna complained a little, but she finished her plate (with the promise of pizza to follow).
Speaking of Anna, she was my little helper in the garden today.
Here she is with a handful of green beans (that were a little too small, but that's OK).
