This yellow squash was the first thing we picked form our garden....well, after all the flowers DD had been picking for a week. This was our first harvest! We were all so excited! I used it and its brothers and sisters in a squash & zucchini jalapeno rice (quinoa- sub) casserole. Yum! Unfortunately before the end of the summer we discovered a borer worm infestation and all our zucchinis and squash got wiped out. But its ok. A lesson learned about prepping the soil. We figure we have the rest of our lives to figure this stuff out. Besides...we got SOMETHING to grow. That is a pretty big deal, for us "city" kids.
BTW: HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY NATIONAL PARKS!! Today is a special day! Go outside and appreciate this amazing country of ours. And if you can watch the documentary "National Parks" by Ken Burns...its amazing!
Also, this is a lift based on "Lucky" by the very talented Shank.Heather. Check it out: http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/layout/5666903.html. I LOVE her work and now that I look at the LO again I realize how much better it is than my interpretation. I may try this again. For now TFL.
