Tomatoes and Squash or Squash and Tomatoes

We used to say when we were growing up, we'd have potatoes and peas at lunch and peas and potatoes for supper. Well this summer, I'm having tomatoes and squash and squash and tomatoes. I've had a bumper crop of both.

This is one of the unknown tomatoes from my brother-in-law. They are huge, simply huge, and delicious.

I believe my squash are at the end of their time - squash borers or worms (as some say). Even though they have some blossoms, the worms are getting the squash and who wants to eat wormy squash!
