Hail to the Squash

Summer squash don't get enough respect. All the brilliant scientific minds in the world couldn't take a little sheep manure compost, a bit more water, and a few days of sunshine, and whip out some big yellow blossoms which, in the blink of an eye, turn into pounds of zucchini or yellow squash. 

"All dinner guests were required to eat squash, and then take some home in plastic sacks. We started considering dinner guest lists, in fact, with an eye toward those who did not have gardens. Our gardening friends knew enough to slam the door if they saw a heavy sack approaching." ~Barbara Kingsolver, My Year of Eating Local: Zucchini Wars
