First squash of the season

golden egg squash 71514I can’t tell if I’m a little late on the first squash or not. Some of my neighbors have already been pulling zucchini, but that’s only been for the last 2 weeks. We love this squash-it’s from Burpee’s and it’s called Golden Egg. It’s a heavy producer and I’ve got 3 of them growing. It’s growing vertically on a tower and this saves a lot of room. Also notice that great looking basil just in front of it. Looks like it’s time to start having our famous fresh tomato pizza for the summer!

    That looks great Jim, my basil has been sickly looking, all light yellow and this is the third year…..wonder what I am doing wrong?

      Hey Bruce…if I were in your shoes I would side dress your basil with some good homemade compost. In about a week your plants will be green again….Jim
