These are two butternut rogosa squash I picked yesterday. I couldn't find a ruler so I used an egg carton so you could judge their size!
What is that, you ask, on the bottom one? Could those be bite marks?
Yes,yes they are.What really aggravates me is they are not MY bite marks! Who then broke down the fence and ate all the vines and even tried to eat the big squash?
Do they look innocent?
Don't be fooled by their sweet faces! They are just fooling you,they are guilty, guilty I tell you! These are actually old pictures, the babies are almost grown now,but it is way to hot to go out and get new ones!
I had a great patch going,I had at least a dozen smaller squash in there.There was another big one but some poultry pecked it up good.I am suspecting a Guinea since I found a Guinea egg in there with the squash! I swear the critters have gotten more of my garden this year than me! Especially the squirrels ! I have put hits out on them and they are thinning in numbers!
Hmmm...I wonder how lamb and squash would taste or maybe squirrel and squash????
