We made a modest planting of winter squash and thus harvested adequate quantity for our fall and winter needs. We intend to cook some yummy dishes throughout the holiday season.
While this picture may not do justice to the twenty pound size of this unique squash we thought we might have an accidental hybrid and waited for it to mature in order to taste it. Four of these beauties dotted the field, each the color of spaghetti squash but with the shape and size of a pink banana squash. We waited until frost to harvest it, and held it up like a large mouth bass for photos. Turns out, it was simply a pink banana squash that didn't know it was supposed to be pink!
The weather is turning cold. Thanksgiving brought us closer to those that we love and gave us a new feeling of gratitude for the world around us. That squash that lay in our field, an accidental hybrid of pink and banana squash, we finally harvested. The squash is indicative of our journey here on the farm. Six years of growth, sometimes small, sometimes large, and sometime accidental. But always filled with the bounty of the earth.
