Beware the Summer Squash!

Not an idle warning--it seems that garden veggies are ripening a little early this summer, so, there will be a number of gardeners who will try to pawn off an abundance of zucchini and summer squash.

Never fear! We have a gazillion vegetable cookbooks including ones devoted entirely to summer squash.

Bard, Rachel. Zucchini and All That Squash. [641.6562 BAR]

Ralston, Nancy C. The Classic Zucchini Cookbook: 225 Recipes for All Kinds of Squash. [641.6562 RAL]

I found a recipe online with the intriguing title "Zuccaghetti." Check out the photo, it looks so cool and refreshing!

If your squash crop isn't up to par, you may want to borrow this book: Rodale's Vegetable Garden Problem Solver: The Best and Latest Advice for Beating Pests, Diseases, and Weeds and Staying a Step Ahead of Trouble in the Garden by Fern Marshall Bradley [635.049 BRA].
