The other day, the girls and I picked some volunteers: three pumpkins and two spaghetti squash. We also had some patty pan ready, as well as a couple of summer squash.
The spaghetti squash does not look like your typical spaghetti squash. For one, it is more ridged like an acorn squash and it’s green. I kept waiting and waiting for it to turn yellow but it just kept getting bigger and bigger so I figured it was ready. The taste is also slightly sweeter than a regular spaghetti squash…so I think we’ve created a hybrid!
I gave the innards of the squash to my almost-full-grown hens. They attacked it with a vigor that resulted in a few flying feathers and loud squawks.
Here’s some yummy squash
A treat to end your long day
Now don’t fight my girls
