We bought 2 pattypan squash seedlings back in June at the farmers' market. The plants didn't really grow much over this unusual and super wet summer we had - but the last couple weeks, they've suddenly taken off. Then last week before we left for the Cape, I noticed they were flowering.
Then this morning when I went outside to the garden to pick some green beans, I could hardly believe it, but we have baby pattypan squash growing. This photo shows the largest one - but there are at least 4 more, and a bunch more blossoms as well. Now all we need is for the frost to hold off, and it seems we'll be harvesting pattypan!
