What a Little Sunshine Will Do

I won’t be the first one to say that this spring has been really unusual around these parts. We’ve had rain and cold weather unlike any other year, which has really slowed down garden growth. However this past weekend we had the most amazing sunny skies and 80 degree weather. Not only did we love the weather, but apparently the plants did too. You wouldn’t believe how things took off! The above photo was taken of our banana squash on Wednesday June 2nd and the below photo was taken this morning, just 6 days later.
This is the first banana squash we’ve grown. Scott couldn’t resist ordering a package of seeds when he read that the squash itself can grow up to 4 feet long and 12 inches in diameter. Gulp! I’m a little worried about how fast this plant is growing….if you don’t hear from us at some point this summer, it may be because the banana squash has overtaken our house!
