The color is so rich in these Squash blossoms. You could almost have a bouquet for the kitchen table.  Have a great day.

OK - so now I'm planning a trip to TN.  LOL  Fresh squash is my ALL time favorite veggie.  Better be careful ... I might creep by there some night and do a moonlight harvest!  LOL

Karen - I love fried squash. I generally do it two different ways depending on the dinner. Either the traditional southern deep fry or a lighter version of the batter, without cornmeal, for a tempura.

Tony - Mother Nature's bounty is the best!

Connie - They are very beautiful and make a great soup.

Carol - No need to sneak around, you are welcome anytime! And I would be happy to share the veggies.

Jackie - They are a very vibrant, deep yellow.

Debi - Of course, maybe 2 for coming all the way from Colorado! <<<smile>>>

Debra - Wow! That is a late spring. Mine only look this good because we actually had an early spring. These were planted in April. Planted Acorn Squash too; they are great deseeded and bake in the oven stuffed with either ravioli or tortelli covered with a homeade cheesy alfredo sauce! Yum!

As I only do one Wordless Wednesday post for AR though you might appreciate the photo from my Rich's Pics photoblog as well. Click HERE to see another beautiful flower, this one from my wildflower garden!

That squash plant looks perfect. I always end up with Squash Borers as I have not found an organic way to prevent them. They are a real problem in my part of TX. Good luck and happy growing!

Rich, My grandmother used to cook the flowers with eggs and breadcrumbs....They were wonderful and that's even before the squash arrived!

Betina - Thankfully, I don't think we have those pests here.

Carole - What a great memory. Squash blossom soup is very popular.

Hi, Rich!  Those blossoms look familiar to me...I've been watching my spaghetti squash vine grow and blossom like crazy.  This is my first year planting it.  Has yours started growing any squash, yet?

Amy - I have harvested tons of squash this summer! So much in fact that I tooks bags of it to my local foodbank. I just replanted some new squash and zucchini plants from seed as my original plants are at the end of their life. I will probably only get a couple of harvests from the new ones before frost but that will still be great. My acorn squash has a couple of veggies ready to harvest. I have never tried to grow spaghetti squash...
