thank you CC. He was so cute pollinating the "girls". He'd run around and say "Nammie, here's a girl, we need to "tickle" her". It was so cute, and such a great learning experience.
here he is making the final product Smile

Hope this pic shows up, it's my grandson pollinating a zucchini squash with his little paintbrush. He quickly caught on how to tell the boy flowers from the girl flowers, and how to "tickle" the girls with the pollen. He's three!! cheers

Awesome! This was a big reason I started my garden-I did not want picky eaters. LOL My son (5) loves to come up with his own recipes. I write them down and if he likes them we put them we put them in his own recipe box, but If he doesnt like it he'll tell me that one is chopped (we watch a lot of cooking shows Laughing ) it's quite cute. He actually takes a few tastes and waits to think about it and then tells what he thinks.

Due to biting the inside of my mouth I'm on smoothies for the next few days. Fortunately I have lots of frozen berries, pears, leafy greens, etc, left from the garden so will be using them up. Found these great recipes:

I would have mashed and frozen some cukes in ice cube trays if I'd been able to grow more than 5.

My protein smoothie:

1 scoop EAS Advant Edge low carb whey protein (vanilla)
8-10 oz Unsweetened Almond milk
1 container (cup) Oikos Triple zero Greek yogurt (vanilla)
2 tbsp peanut butter. I use a sugar free powder

If I need extra fiber that day, I toss in 2 tbsp wheat germ. I've been known to add the slightest pinch of tumeric as well.
Also good with any type of berry, banana, spinach.
