This crossword puzzle has taken about twenty times longer to put together than I thought it would, even though I have done these before and should have known better. I intended for it to have a squash theme, or at least a garden theme, which perhaps it does, but I was forced to include many completely unrelated words, names and phrases, some of them quite bizarre and for which I apologize. Less abstruse clues are available upon request.
