Patty Pan

I’ve never grown squash before mostly because I am afraid of harvesting 10 zucchini a day and having no place to put them and running out of ideas for what to do with them so then feeling guilty about composting or pretending I don’t see them and leaving them on the plant to turn into baseball bats.

A couple of weeks ago I was poking around my garden and I saw something that looked like a patty pan squash. I did not plant a patty pan squash and I couldn’t figure out where it came from. We don’t eat a lot of patty pan squash either.

But my friend Christopher gave me some seeds this season so went and checked and one of them was white scallop squash which for some reason when he gave them to me, I pictured as a sort of pale pumpkin.

Aha! White scallop squash. And it’s not giving me 10 a day. It only gave us 2 so far and there are 2 more out there. And they were DELICIOUS. I wish there were more.
