flying squash monster

By August, the balance of power shifts in the garden. No longer must I clear weeds to give developing veggies room for self-realization. No, my infant plants have grown into big bullies, more than able to fend for themselves. The big task is bringing in the vegetables fast enough, before they become monstrous. In mid-August, the beans and squash seem to grow before my eyes. A typical daily  harvest looks like this:

And yes, it frequently includes a monster that somehow managed to escape my notice and grow unchecked for an extra week or so. I thought this one might be nice stuffed. Since squash can be on the bland side, I planned feta/rice filling fragrant with fresh green coriander, arugula, mint and chives. And more squash.
