Squash are a miracle food! Zucchini are ridiculously productive, probably nothing else matches them for pounds per square foot, and then there’s the winter squashes, many will easily keep for over a year. I love the acorn squashes, and other hard rind squash, can be used in soups and stews like sweet potato, etc, etc.
In my perspective squash is some of the greatest achievements of selective breeding that man ever accomplished, corn being the other miracle.
But I do like Kristijans approach also…
