We wanted to see how big it would grow, but on Sunday night, our patience was running short and we decided it was time to eat our giant squash, and not without documenting our first successfully home-grown vegetable.
Note that the squash is comparable to the size of my nearly-husband's head.
Even the diameter of the squash was huge. Also, Eddie thought it was for him.
I did not take pictures of the cooked squash, because let's be real here, it looks like every other cut up and sauteed squash you have seen (mixed in with some broccoli and mushrooms and other goodies). Also, I was too hungry and excited to stop and snap a picture. Nonetheless we were pretty excited to have grown a huge chunk of our Sunday dinner.
For next year, I have aspirations for a much larger, more diverse garden since this year's has been pretty easy. Also, I am now taking recipe recommendations involving cucumbers, because we are about to have a whole slew of them ready for picking.
