Cooked delicata squash like its other name sweet potato squash, tasted very similar to sweet potato. Cooks very fast, very delicate and tasty.
Split delicata squash -
The August rules is not to buy vegetables other than onions, carrots and potatoes. We have been surviving on vegetables and greens from the garden.
Beans - long beans, string beans and broad beans
I have never tried growing squash. Zucchini is the only one I have tried and they were a disappointment this year. Squash has done pretty good considering the seeds are from god knows how many years ago. The ridge gourd which gave fruits like crazy a couple of years ago have lost their potency and are only flowering and fruiting very sparsely. The age of the seeds does matter.
Green Chili Time
The chillies are just starting to make their presence felt. The very tender green chilies are not spicy as the fully mature ones.
