Squash

First thing to remember is to harvest the squash when it is younger and tender. Squash does like too much water (this is the lesson I learned from last year). Either stuffed or steamed squash, salad, and baking cake, home grown squash always taste better.

  1. Squash is not a popular vegetable here. The fibre must be as nice as a zucchini right? This cake recipe looks yummy ;-) I might try it with zucchini. Have a great day!

  3. Stephanie, Kim and Victoria,

    Yes, I'm growing zucchini this year. It's nice to have a home grown zucchini cake as breakfast or for tea break.
