And now I'm awash in squash with more on the way.

After my attempt to start seeds in my dining room went horribly wrong, I resigned myself to plant the squash seeds directly in the ground.  The sticks are markers to remind me where they were planted.

But now, shit has gotten real.

For the love of God, ask me for a squash and I’ll give it to you.

Until I get a deep freezer, I’ll have squash coming out of my ears.  Beware of asking for a good yield, you may very get what you ask for.
