New Squash - Queensland Blue

This is a baby Queensland Blue squash. 

I've tried to grow this before and gotten nothing, so I was pretty darned happy when I finally got a big one this year. 

We put extra chicken manure in the bed.   Apparently, it matters. 

I love that awesome shape.  

The big question is whether it is going to actually be blue or not.

A few weeks later, this is what I've got.

It's looking pretty blue.

Now I have to figure out what to do with it, because frankly, I've been so amazed at the transformation, that I forgot to see if we could eat it. 

I got the seed from Baker Creek.   If it's tasty, I'll do more next year because now I have to have blue squash.
