Comments On - Squash Season

Hi David,

Thanks. Too bad. Vine Borer is a discouraging pest, and I'm really happy we don't have it here. I grew squash in Colorado and I needed to pile soft dirt aroung the crowns and nodes to inhibit egg laying in the stem bases. Keeping the soil piled around the crowns was harder than it sounds.
I think we might have squash flowers cooked with and cheese and soy sauce for lunch today. Yummy!

Nice article. There are many things to comment on. I found it especially interesting that you eat the squash flowers. I have heard that you can eat the flowers but never have tried them myself. Zucchini is difficult to grow here because of the vine bore. Just when they start to produce the bore going up the stem and kills the plant.
