well the chickens ate most of our garden this year (there will be a fence around the garden next year)

But I do have some Yellow crookneck squash that the girls dont seem to touch. I didnt even know I planted this.
I am wondering can you eat these? or are they just decoration. And if you can eat them anyone have a recipe??

If it is squash you can eat it. This is the kind of squash we like here. I like to cut it up into bite size pieces and cook it in a pan with butter and onions. Also you can fry it. Are you sure it is squash and not something else?

oh thank you.....we have 3 small gardens...a HIS a HERS and a KIDS
HIS and KIDS mainly have pumpkins, sunflowers, and corn.
HERS (mine) has/had onions, tomatos, hot peppers, squach, green beans, and herbs. I really wanted to make salsa this year but the chickens ate all but 2 of my tomatoes.

So when can I pick these squach, and can I make soup out of them? Do I use the skins?
