This spring discovered was a beautiful growth that I did not plant.
Many months back in the grocery I saw my favored squash and weighed it...upon that I gently returned it to its post for I was not a willing soul to pay so much for it.
I remembered the thought I had had of how cool it would be to grow such a squash for myself.
I distinctly remembered it!
One day said growth adorned itself with a tell tell flower distinctive of its family of squash.
Still I did not know what it was for some time.
It looked perhaps at first like a summer squash and the year past I had one growing here.
After some time however it became plainly clear what I had growing.
Watching this gift to me grow meant so much to me.
Each day growing so fast that I stood pleased and amazed.
This week it became a part of our menu.
How good it is to eat the crop of your hand
and better yet to enjoy the gifts that are freely given to enjoy.
