Q: What do you do when summer squash morphs from tenderly edible and cute to a rock-hard, warty weapon? (Oftentimes before you or your *harvest crew ever spy it in the garden!)
A: You unleash your own weapons of mass destruction (aka: your boys) to break the squash into compost-able smithereens.
"Really, Mom, you WANT us to hit the squash? This is awesome!"
Tell the boys they need to rake the spoils so you can measure who has the biggest pile.
Mom for the victory!
*(Wait, that's fewer squash for the
boys harvest crew to eat. Ooh, they're sneaky.)
