Squash coming out of our ears!!!!!

Heston planted a garden with my parents and his dad right after Emily was born. We lost several plants but Heston has nurtured our little garden daily and now we are seeing the fruits of his labor!
Daddy's little helper!
The Garden Went from seeds to this....
.....Then to this.....
(Our first flowering squash)
.....And now to this!...... (See Dani? She is holding up a tomato. She loves to go to the garden to find tomatoes and then eat them like apples.)
She takes a whole tomato.....
...starts chowing....
...and ends up with this! (sometimes if it's really tasty she even eats the whole stem if I don't catch her to stop her.)
Going to harvest the garden is Dani and Abby's favorite thing to do with their daddy when he gets home from work! Thanks for being such a good gardener dad! .....but we are all getting sick of eating squash. We would greatly appreciate it if anyone would like to share any good recipes!

I am so jealous! Your gargen is beautiful. Wish I had lots of recipes for squash . . . or lived closer so I could take them off your hands. (In spite of sounding like Bubba from Forest Gump) Have you tried Zucchini bread, fried zucchini, zucchini quiche, BBQ'd zucchini, saute'd squash, squash ice cream . . . jk. ran out of ideas. :)

How fun!! When I saw the picture of Dani eating the tomato I thought only Melissa's girls would eat tomatoes whole...where's the salt:). I love the squash coming out of the ears. If I were a major baker I might have some recipes for you but since I'm not it's looks like you will need to google for recipes.

Wow! your garden looks great! I tried this year, being in the new house but it did not happen. Plus, Colorado is so hard! Hope all is well.
