I have not been able to successfully grow summer squash organically due to the pesky ole squash borer. Which is a caterpillar that will bore its way up the squash stalk, until the squash plant finally dies.
Well not this year! I actually started my squash (goldprize straight neck squash & eight ball squash) in seeds trays, which were 2 varieties that came from Hoss Premium Seeds, & planted them fairly early this year & so I got a big jump start & that meant my squash started producing fruit way before the borers were out & about. And let me tell you, we have had the squash! So much so that we started coming up with ways to utilize all of this wonderful summer squash, & one of those ways was Squash Relish.
If you like chow-chow or sauerkraut, then chances are you'll love squash relish. We've been putting this wonderful condiment on peas to polish hot dogs, & it is just downright delicious.
