the fruits of our labors

We planted 3 squash plants, only 1 grew, but it seems like it will be providing us quite a few beautiful yellow vegetables. We had our first homegrown squash on Friday night. It was delicious! Why did I not like squash as a kid??

Action shot of Dan "harvesting". As you might be able to see, we haven't done a great job weeding our garden. I'll do better next year, one step at a time.

My attempt at a self portrait. Despite the man at bicycle village telling me I have abnormally long arms...I guess they aren't long enough.

Dan is much better at it :)

AWESOME! That is one good-lookin' squash! I am jealous! We are looking at a pretty meager harvest here. I am still holding out hope....

I am impressed. I may start a garden soon. Any ideas??? I don't know how to "garden"... and our soil is pretty... dry and not fertile, so if you have any words of advice, they would be appreciated.

The guy at Bicycle Village sounds like kind of a jerk. Congrats on growin some squash.

Yum! I love homegrown veggies. Your lucky you were able to grow something with all the crazy weather you have had this past spring and summer. Enjoy!
