This is the week for squash harvest. We’ve had a pesky problem with squash vine borers over the years, so squash has always been hard to get to maturity. For some reason, this year, the vine borers seemed absent – not sure if it was the weather, some other cycle, or having more chickens roaming eating pests, but whatever the case, we’ve got enough to get us through the winter. This was only to first load to be picked and washed before tucking in the basement.
Look for nice squash soups on the winter menu at high hopes.
