Finally the monstrous tromboncino vines are coming down and the guys are temporarily stockpiling their weapons, er squashes, on the table outdoors.
After the final weigh in, finding a place to store these lanky vegs, then the fun starts. Good news, we have a bumper crop, the bad news, well finding creative ways to use these beasts. Yep, I definitely know what we’ll be eating for the next, oh, 6 months! After one runs the recipe gauntlet of squash, soup, bread, muffins, cake, baked, steamed, casserole then what’s left? Some very frustrated homegrown eaters wanting summer to hurry. 😉
The rally cry of the WWII victory garden’s was “our food is fighting” not only is this homegrown revolution a fight against the powers that be but these beauties can go either way. Besides assisting us in keeping our diet homegrown they could even be used as a bonafide weapon to defend our stash (joke, not that we’d use them this way to hurt people) or in a more peaceful way — a neck ornament *grin*
