Squash update and the spinach bolted

With some warmer temperatures the squash has developed some buds.

This was tuesday.

Today we have flowers!

In learning about the squash, these flowers are the boy parts. I am waiting to discover there the female parts so I can help the pollination process. Who knew when talking about boy and girl parts it would be to help grow fruit. I do hope the song is true to form and when it comes to the pollination that “the bees do it.”

Great for the squash, but not so great for spinach. Looks like it bolted.

I am going to pick it all tomorrow to make a salad and will leave the bolts there and will attempt to dry them and use them in the fall.
