The wife fusses if I let them grow and bring yellow squash in that big.....seeds are too big she says.
They don't bother me.

Kinda the same way greybeard. I like em small, I pick a lot of zucchini with the flower still open. If I wait a day it would take a week to finish eating one cause the get so big. I don’t like the seeds either.

Ever try pickling the little mini squash like dill pickles?

Never thought of that. They might be tasty too.
