Still Life with Macho Chayote

Another grocery store adventure: there are two kinds of chayote squash apparently, the smooth green one and then the other one, just the same except for the millions of yellowish spines that grow out of the skin, making a sort of halo around it so it looks velvety from 10 feet away. And it is called, no kidding, macho chayote.


  1. I'm thinking...'macho coyote'?
    But then I read it and still seems like 'macho coyote' :D
    You handled it very well.

  2. Thanks, Mary -- do you know that squash? I don't know what part of the country you're in, here in Texas we have some exotic vegetables, and the macho one is maybe the strangest.

  3. Another great job on the fabric, Jean! Very nice!
