Season squashes are one of my choice parts of disappear. I am uneasy over their ontogeny periods each spring and season, doing my top to reject the hordes of peckish grasshoppers, and the irregular pecking yellow in my garden. I put umpteen prayers asking that they overblown before the rank solid pause. Then, when at last their gilded and chromatic and brown and patterned and streaked rinds modify my tableland and cellar, I respire umteen prayers of thanksgiving, and get to run out my plans for them.
