i know, i mean how much could you possibly care about my farmer's market?
but i bought these yesterday and didn't exactly know what they were or how i was going to cook them. so i looked up "squash" and found out that squash is firstly either summer squash or winter squash - according to the season in which it's grown. obviously, this being late august, these are summer squash. further investigation revealed that the 3 globular ones are called "eight ball" and are just a differently shaped zucchini and the funny little yellow one is called a "pattypan." to know this squash trivia was weirdly important to me.
oh, and happy labor day!
