None of that, we’re squashed in yellow, and green with LOTS of yellow squash, zucchini, and soon butternut squash growing in the Frog & PenguINN veggie garden thanks to Grenville’s green thumb(s) and fingers.
HOW fast are things growing?
Last week, the yellow squash plant looked like this.
Just visible are several small yellow squash, and they do grow fast !
This was the harvest that, Grenville delivered today, several yellow squash and a cucumber.
In the past week, we’ve picked and eaten red lettuce, spinach, zucchini, beets, scallions, and red onions.
Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, carrots, beans, corn, cauliflower, are not ready for picking yet – hopefully they won’t all be ready at once.
Farmer Grenville has really been busy taking care of the gardens, especially watering as we had a serious lack of rain until recently. I’m an assistant weeder, picker, cook, and consumer.

Grenville is over-anxious to make a BLT (bacon-lettuce-tomato) sandwich with just tomatoes and lots of mayo on white bread – is there any other way?
