Yummy! I am so jealous of your vegetables and fruits. Brett! Many years ago, when I lived in the country, my then-husband and I planted our first and only garden — watermelon, yellow squash, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, and corn. The only ones that produced anything worth our time and effort were the zucchini and yellow squash. The yellow squash was prolific — gave it away by the bagful, ate it almost every day. More than thirty years later and I still cringe when I see yellow squash!

No more in-the-ground gardens for me, except some hot pepper plants — habaneros, jalapenos, chili — and they usually do well. I can’t even get patio tomatoes to produce!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
