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.

Farm girl wannabe, enjoying life on the Big Island. We have a small five acre farm along the Hamakua coast. While we have a few crops we grow to sell, we are trying to create a self sustaining lifestyle on our little piece of paradise. I set up this blog initially to help me keep track of different things we grow and how well they’re doing, but recently decided to go public with it. I enjoy reading other hobby farm sites, and thought sharing our story a little might inspire others as they have inspired me.
