Butternut squash

One of my favorite things to grow in the garden is butternut squash. It’s very versatile to cook with, and best of all it’s pretty bug resistant compared to other squash we’ve tried to grow .
Our vine isn’t huge but it’s a loaded with squash.  So I’ve been looking at different recipes, and tonight I’m making a spinach butternut squash lasagna.  I added asparagus from the garden for extra measure. It has a cream sauce as opposed to a tomato sauce, crossing my fingers it comes out good .

Today was a lazy day on the farm. David went fishing and crabbing. I know he caught a nice sized ono because he sent me a picture, but I’m waiting to see what else he is going to come home with. I on the other hand got caught up on some reading and some sunbathing.  It was really beautiful today.  After three weeks of rain it was nice to have a warm sunny day.

RAIN RAIN

It’s the third weekend of rain. Too wet to mow, and not fun for me to work in the garden. In all honesty it’s my hubby who does most of the work, but I had plans to help with a greenhouse. So instead we picked some berries, (mulberries and black raspberries) and made scones. We roasted a batch of our coffee, and sat on the porch enjoying the start of another wet day. I can’t really complain because it’s actually pretty wonderful. I feel blessed.
