Today's picture/Ronde de Nice squash

When I read this beautifully written and illustrated book, I wanted to grow one of the 75. I chose the Ronde de Nice squash. It was such a success last year that I'm growing it again this season, and today I picked the first ones. Aren't they just adorable vegetables? And tasty, too. I recommend the book to anyone who loves to garden and loves to eat (guess that covers just about everybody).


  1. Those look like the 'Cue Ball' squash I've been harvesting this year. It's the first time I've grown this variety and I really like it. Plus the plants can't seem to stop producing! I'm going to grow them again.

  2. Where did you get the seeds, Carol? I've found the plant to be very prolific, too. This year we planted just one hill of Ronde de Nice and four of the Zephyr. What do you cook with your little squash?

  3. I didn't try anything really unusal this year, but from reading your blog I am getting a good list going for next year! *grin*


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
