    Bay, tell me how much you like those cattle panels at the end of the season. That's when it will mean something. I've never tried double rows, not sure how that will work. But I'm sure you will tell us.

    Bay everything looks so great!!! It seems like such a long time ago when you where dealing with the bank. Now it all worth the aggravation. Remember when you start to get tired of eating squash, their flowers stuffed and fried amazing!!!

    @Ridgerunner I've tried tying tomatoes up all sorts of ways as I am sure everybody else has. So far, cow panels are da' bomb! Since I always crammed plants together at our old house, why not double rows here? We'll see how it goes.

    I spent the afternoon in the kitchen today. Friday we took our grand daughters to pick blueberries. The 9 year old doesn't like them, but was very proud of herself for picking 3 pounds to take home. :thumbsup

    The 16 month old loves blueberries and got busy picking. Green ones, red ones, purple ones---all went in her mouth. She ate out of my bucket and contributed red and green blueberries to the bucket. She had a large time. She finally got her fill and when I offered her more blueberries, she turned her head and said no. I'm pretty sure she ate some dirt with them. :lol:

    My husband picked 4 pounds and I would up with 2 pounds. I washed them and put on cookie sheets and put them in the freezer. Today I vacuum sealed them in bags. Need to go pick some more.

    And I had all that squash to do something with! I sliced it, shredded it, and froze it. I made cream corn from 20 ears of corn and mixed with the shredded squash for fritters.

    I used my Mom's 1950 Salad Master grater. :love

    Cream corn.

    I put a cup of squash and a cup of cream corn in Ziploc bags and froze it. I got 13 bags. I sliced the squash and bagged the big slices, the necks went to the grater. Each vacuum sealed bag had from 16-24 slices of squash, depending on the size of the slices. I got 16 bags.

    I fried fritters for supper. They didn't come apart this time.

    1 cup shredded squash
    1 cup cream corn
    1 egg
    1 cup flour
    1/2 large onion, chopped
    1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    salt, pepper

    I made patties and also did spoon drop. The spoon drop belched forth big popping grease splatters. Won't be doing that again!

    And I made squash lasagna!
