Which came first the chicken or the egg? In this case it's which comes first the blossom or the squash? I never really considered that question until I took this picture about four days ago. There they were, tiny little yellow squash with the beginnings of a blossom. They looked like that right up until yesterday's rain.
Look at the difference. Now the little squash have big yellow female blossoms . Once the blossoms are pollinated the squash will grow and develop seeds. The male blossoms are the smaller flowers on the skinny little green stems. It will only be a day or two and we will be eating yellow squash. The wonderful garden treats of summer just keep on coming.
