Hurrah! I have finally (finally) managed to harvest a summer squash from my garden. It's hard to believe that it's late August and I am just getting my first mature yellow zucchini. Most gardeners are in the "giving it away to everyone they know" phase of squash production by now.
I harvested my precious yellow zucchini this morning, and I plan to have it for dinner tonight or tomorrow night. I'm not sure how I'll cook it. I want to keep the preparation simple, so I can savor the vegetable's natural flavor. This may be my only homegrown squash of the year, after all.
