    These grew very fast, but were weakened by wilt from cucumber beetles earlier than I expected. These are a bush type, though, so it may be a simple matter of using row covers early on to keep them from falling victim to wilt. It was delicious, though, sauteed or roasted, and quite beautiful. I'll find a pic of it at harvest size shortly.

    Although there was always a new squash waiting after we picked one, the wait for them to grow to a reasonable size was longer than for Bennings Green Tint.
