I’ve Got a Green Tiger by the Tail! Garden Sense #HarrisSeeds #Spon

When I say, “I’ve got a Green Tiger by the tail,” I’m not referring to this tiger.

Or this tiger…

but this tiger.

You’ve heard me talk about Green Tiger Squash test plants from Harris Seeds all summer. These green striped beauties have out-produced any zucchini I’ve ever grown. Here’s a few weighing-in at 19 lbs from a contest I held.

Green Tiger Squash is easy to grow. It tolerated a wide variety of temperatures and abundant rainfall we had here in PA. I found it to be very resistant to insects and a hardy producer.

The bees loved it too!

Here are a few of my recipes using this versatile squash. Use it casseroles, stuffed, fritters, cakes, breads and cookies.

I was provided with test seeds from Harris Seeds and asked to evaluate those seeds. I was under no obligation to write a post or compensated in any other way. Opinions expressed are my own and not necessarily those of Daily Dish Magazine.

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
