Well, my friends, I can now proudly say I am an owner of a PRODUCING garden. Our hybrid squash was making only male flowers for a week, I was checking on it a few times a day (I am a nut) because this plant is very pretty hybrid, and I couldn't wait to see what females are going to look like. This morning I checked on it, and found 3-4 females with fruit, looking awesome! Check out the half-green, and half-yellow fruit. It's called Zephyr, and it's a zucchini/yellow squash mix. Judging by how fast they popped, we are going to see some serious crop. There are 50 flowers waiting to open any minute (some of them are males, of course).

I know. I always plant but am still pleasantly surprised when I actually get anything.

Those are so pretty! They remind me of the way a yellow squash looks when you cut it open, with those soft green seeds. Lovely!
