My three squashes and the end of summer
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here in the United States and Canada, today is a holiday. It’s Labor Day.
If you’re not from the United States or Canada, here’s a little info on the holiday. This info is via Wikipedia and Answers.com
The first Monday in September, observed as a holiday in the United States and Canada in honor of working people.
Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer.
In high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable for women to wear white.
I’m not sure if September will mark an end to the dog days of summer, but it’s supposed to be the end of summer.
🙂 That also means, the end or near the end of summer squash, so Friday when I went to the Farmer’s Market I picked up a few varieties of squash.
The yellow/green squash are over sized 8-ball squash I think. Think zucchini squash.
The white squash are Pattypan squash. Funny little things aren’t they?
Here is a cool resource page for squash.
I hope you have a wonderful day! I’m off to swim and enjoy the holiday!
