55 days — Also known as ‘Lebanese White Bush’ and ‘White Vegetable Marrow.’ A bush-type summer squash with quick maturing fruits that have an excellent, sweet flavor, weigh one to two pounds and look like small honeydew melons. The flesh is sweet and has been referred to as “the honeydew of squashes.” The rinds cook up well and are easily eaten. Very popular in the Middle East. Survives quickly changing climate variations.Victory Seeds
I was checking for stink bug eggs and nymphs and there they were. Like magic! The larger one weighs in at a pound and a half.
I walked into the kitchen and said, “It’s time!” Mr. Big Food looked up from the Big Food Manual and Survivalist Flourishing Guide, saw the squash and replied, “We may have to adjust the menu for this week.”
First cherry tomato, too.
Also, first hornworm eggs of the season on the tomatoes. Time to get out the Dipel.
