Delicata squash is just starting to ripen. This squash is a summer/winter type. This is a very tender sweet squash that has an eatable skin. My favorite way to cook it is cut in wedges like fries and coat with olive oil then cook on the grill for about 10 minutes.

Butternut squash is looking good too. It should be ready by the end of the month.
Pickling cucumbers have been hit by the wilt. Total crop failure.  There is another crop coming but it will be a month before it produces.
