This year in the garden my son grew a crook neck squash, he planted it by seed at school brought it home and I gave him a mound of soil in the garden to plant it. I was hoping this would help him to have more of an interest in the garden, it didn't. He does help me in the garden but not with much enthusiasm, but probably to be expected from a 13 year old. His little plant did grow and gave us two little crook necks before the first freeze. Even my zucchini was late and not plentiful this year because of the weird summer weather, so we were glad for the two. My son helped me cook them up, we put some garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper on and grilled them. The skins were a bit tough but otherwise they were good.
