Squash Blossom

This morning when I went out to water the garden, one of two blossoms on one of the zucchini plants was fully open.

It remains to be seen if a zucchini will develop there.

Last year, we planted zucchini, but the output was not what I expected.

In the past, I had learned that I would get an overabundance — along with everyone else I knew who had zucchini in their garden, to the point where you couldn't give it away.

Instead, last year's harvest was downright pitiful.

Even where a fruit would chance to develop, it would frequently shrivel up and drop off while still a fingerling.

Only a few grew to harvestable size, and even then they were pretty small. I could tell that if I didn't pick them, they too would shrivel and die.

I hope this year is better.
