Last summer I had a tremendous squash failure. My zuchinni squash grew into monstrosities that nearly choked the life out of some other plants. I was excited when I saw them flower, but then…..no fruit. None. Zero Zuchinni. I was an unhappy gardener.
Note: This is apparently because squash plants have genders! Go figure! I either had all gals or all guys but either way, I was left out of the party.
If only I had read this article on eating Squash Blossoms! I see them now for sale at farmer’s markets and hope that even if he squash fail in the fruit again, the flowers will see me through!
Check out this lovely NPR article on edible flora, especially squash blossoms.
And Kyle, I’m frightened of some forms of foraging in a city of both dogs and people peeing in public, but I simply have to also pass along this article on some wild edibles to you who live in a much more abundant and not so scary greenery.
Eating Dandelions! Next time I’m in town we should weed your yard for lunch!
Hope you are getting a wonderful harvest, my friend. Are you tracking your goods in any way?
