Our first Zephyr squash. Should be ready to eat tonight!
I may have mentioned before that it's an experimentation year for squash. I planted eight different varieties, plus had one come up volunteer in the compost pile.
That volunteer squash turned out to be an acorn squash, sort of. It's either a not-true-from-seed hybrid or it's from the seed of a cross-pollinated one, because it was white-fleshed and not tasty at all. It was a pseudo-vegetable.
I have high hopes for my Zephyrs though. I'll let you know how it goes!
(As you can probably see in the picture, the grass in the garden really took off with the recent rain.)
