Summer Squash ~ Zucchini

In the end of the spring, beginning of the summer my friend gave me two summer squash plants. For a long time nothing happened. It very much looked the plants had stopped growing. Then suddenly the leaves were huge and not long ago there was the first flower. A large, yellow flower. In a couple of days we were able to see there would be a summer squash. The other day there was two of them, big enough to pick and use. Yay, my first summer squashes 😀 Thank you my friend 🙂 I made a summer squash cauliflower gratin. I can’t believe I didn’t take a picture of it. Well, next time because there will be many more of them very soon.

      Eeeee ! There’s not going to be any gratin. Now there are plenty snails eating the flowers ! Good thing is they don’t like the zuccihini 🙂 There still are a few more that harvest.

      Thank you elizabetcetera for your comment. I have never used them in cooking but perhaps I should give it try. I googled for recipes and there are many 🙂

        And then you can make another post! The last time I had zucchini blossoms was when I was in Italy a couple years ago. I would love to try making them but can’t find zucchini blossoms anywhere and there’s no room for a garden. So make some for me and I will live vicariously through you!
