At the risk of becoming the “squash baby blog,” one final post on the subject. Reader Piero Fiocco sent some photo evidence that conflicts with Doug Harvey’s “Sass-squash” theory. Fiocco sent a brief, cryptic note:
“I from Italy once again.
I came in possession of this evidence….
Use it as you wish, but keep Erik cool
Ciao from Italy!”
It seems as though I “grew” an Internet meme rather than summer vegetables this year!

But at least I got “squash baby sibling,” which weighed in at a mere 17 pounds, shown above with a phone for scale .
Squash sibling was mercilessly chopped up and turned into four squash galettes, plus lots of leftovers.
Unfortunately squash sibling was harvested prematurely, to prevent theft, and tasted more like a zucchini (if it were ripe it would have pumpkin-style flesh). Because of this, the galettes were sub-standard.
Funny, writing this post reminded me that I had completely forgotten about the big, fat Greek pumpkin I grew last year. Read that post for a link to the galette recipe.
