I like summer squash and generally I don't have the problems with over-abundance that many folks have because the squash borers and insects get to mine soon enough. This year may see an abundance of summer squash, though.
I chose to plant 2 heirloom summer squash varieties this summer, said to be more resistant. They are Costata Romanesco (a zucchini), and Lemon squash, which only looks like a lemon but tastes like most yellow summer squash. In fact, the lemon squash is rather pretty.
I have to say I'm quite pleased with how they have held up in the heat, and how few bugs I've seen, and NO squash borers so far. I have 7-8 squash quiche in the freezer, and a bunch grated, drained and frozen for possible zucchini bread when holiday time rolls around. I also found a great recipe for faux crab cakes using zucchini, and it is surprisingly good. I have 2 big batches now in the freezer that will only need nuking for a meal.
