Yeah, I know it's kind of obnoxious to keep posting pics of baby squash, but I have a little squash obsession and I think it's only fair to share it with you. Some people show off pics of their kids and dogs, I show off pics of my squash. It's a crazy world.
Also, excuse all the hands in the pics. Not super attractive, but I wanted to give you an idea of how big they are getting.
This is Australian Butter Squash. Sort of chunky and exactly the color of butter. This is our first time growing this one. I can't wait to see how big it gets and what it tastes like.
This one is Honeyboat Delicata. It's pretty prolific. I've got at least six fruit right now and they set pretty early. They're a little longer than my hand. I think they're supposed to turn more coppery when they're ready to harvest, so I'm waiting.
This is Black Futsu. I tried it last year and it finally set fruit in late September. They were adorable and tiny but too late to ripen. I decided to try again this year. You can see how big this one is getting. It'll have an orange area when it's ready.
This one is a summer squash - Golden Marbre Pattypan. I love the stripes. These get a bit bigger than my palm and dark yellow when they're ready.
And this one is a Musquee de Provence. You can see how big it is already and it's just getting bigger. I have two more big ones like this one.
The little white things are some volunteer baby white pumpkins. We keep throwing the remains in with the chickens and every year we get more of them as volunteers from the chicken dirt we amend the garden with.
