Tomatoes, pumpkins and squash, OH MY!!!

This year I enlarged our veggie garden quite a bit and after a rather rocky beginning, this is sort of what it looks like now!!

Then, one day while climbing thru the forest of leaves I can upon this monster! This pic was several days ago,

It was measuring about 14 inches then..... and i've just discovered a cousin across the patch that is 15 inches! Pink Banana Squash.....shoulda read the package closer. Typical size is....well....what I have... typical weight... 10 to 15 pounds!!! OUCH!!!!! THAT'S a LOT of squash! LOL!!! Now i'll have to figure out a way to store it for gradual use! Boy....looking a little bit like squash cakes, cookies, soups, bread, noodles....ummmm.... any ideas??? LOL!!!

Hello Leslie, what a productive garden you have!!! You must put a lot of magic in that dirt. LOL DH and I was chatting last night and we reckon we need to amend the soil with a lot of "S" before our garden will grow anything. LOL Sooo what is the secret to your lovely garden.

Leslie: That "thing" looks like a spaghetti squash! We are currently being innundated with zucchini and pattypan squash. We thought we would be moved by now and it would be someone ELSE'S problem! LOL!
