This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Are those yellow straightneck squash? I'm growing them this year and they have a wonderful close, silky texture and very prolific as well.

Yes. You're right about the texture. Very nice. This year I have Gold Bar yellow squash. Its a straightneck variety and very prolific and tasty. Last year I had Yellow Crookneck, which didn't produce many squash for me. I like Gold Bar much better.

I prefer the yellow straightneck to the zucchini (Cashflow). My little Sunburst squash was very tasty too, but it is not very prolific.
