Anyone know the average yield for crookneck squash?

I don't know if it's normal or it's the goat poop, but the crookneck squash is monster. I stopped counting at about 30 little squashes. ..on one plant.

I am going to harvest the male blossoms to stuff with goat cheese, and I may pick some baby squashes just to try them.

Seriously - is this normal? Good thing we like squash. And good thing I didn't plant a nine-pack like I did with the stupid Chinese cabbage. Look at all the little buds still starting!

I'm so happy for you! You are now a real farmer! I knew you could grow anything. You've got the secret ingredient --manure! Course don't use it with potatoes as they don't work with compost.

Yes--- your plant is pretty normal.
You know how to can? it's really not that hard and if you're by the stove for the cheese anyway you might be able to do it at the same time....

All righty! My boyfriend was hollering from the garden at sunrise this morning to tell me the squash plants burst forth again during the night. We love squash too so this is a good thing. GO MANURE!
