It’s been a good garden year. I haven’t posted much since spring because, frankly, summer is a busy time. The garden has done great. I’ve had some great successes (and some colossal failures). But by far, my most anticipated fruit of the year are almost ready. I give to you now…butternut squash.


IMAG1098These have been a long time coming, and are frankly a miracle for me this year. I’ll post more about the ordeal later. But they looked so beautiful this morning, I had to share.

Mmm. I like butternut squash with pasta.

Never had it with pasta. How do you prepare it? We love to make soup with it, or as a substitute for pumpkin in recipes. I am so fond of how long it keeps in the pantry, as opposed to summer veggies.

To be honest I buy it locally as pumpkin or squash filled ravioli!
