Meet baby zucchini.
Actually, it’s not quite a baby zucchini yet. This is only a female squash blossom. My farmer was teaching me how to identify one. You can tell the female blossoms from the male because of the bulbous end at the base of the blossom. Male blossom don’t have that.
It’s helpful to know, especially if I’m ever put in a position to pollinate a squash. Which can be necessary, if you don’t have enough bees and bugs around to do the job.
