I tried my hand at pollinating the squash today and I was able to work with a total of two squashes. One Ronde de Nice and one crookneck had both a male and female flower open this morning, so I took some pollen from the male and put it on the female flower. We'll see what happens!

I also harvested a lot of basil, thanked myself for having the foresight to plant so much this year, and brought it in to make pesto. We may not have a lot of squash this year, but we'll sure have a lot of pesto to eat!
