  1. I’m embarrassed to say how often I purchased this squash at farmers markets and did not cook them because I was sure how. Kept buying them because they looked so cool.

    Finally this summer someone clued me in that all I need to do is slice them horizontally and sauté them in olive oil (or steam) with salt and pepper. Simple, fresh and wonderful. It’s now on the list for next years garden.

  4. Gayla,

    It was absolutely splendid to have had such famed photographers come by the farm! In fact I was just thinking about you and Laura and decided to post this photo on Twitter (http://twitpic.com/dvo85) with this tweet (http://bit.ly/hwV9g). Hope you don’t mind!

    Come by any time!

    Fair winds,

  5. Ciao Gayla-

    I think Johnny’s carries that one. I’ve wanted to order it for a few years now, but ordering one thing from an American site, you’ll kill yourself with the shipping charges. How is it for flavour?
