The end of the butternut squash harvest


Two little red wagons and two boxes full. Oh yes, and ten that are still stored in the house.

Squash, anyone? It's hard to find somebody who likes butternut squash, which really puzzles me.

Cliff went to the dentist today and let them check his mouth. They agree with my assessment: the rash is gone.

He suggested this morning that since I could see the spots were gone, maybe he didn’t need to go to the dentist. I reminded him that I’m the one who told him for two months that he was having heartburn, when he was actually having angina.


  1. I'm glad Cliff is ok and I do wish I could take you up on the squash offer. Hope someone does.

  2. I have never ate a butternut squash so I don't know if I would like it or not. You really had a good harvest of them. Glad the dentist pronounced Cliff's mouth was ok. Maybe you are a good dentist but not so good a regular doc LOL. Helen

  3. I am trying it tonight for the first time. Sheila

    I LOVE butternut squash but here in my zone & altitude I can only get acorn squash to make it SOMETIMES - not this year though. If I were closer I would trade you squash for "free-range" (the hens get to roam from 3pm to dark) eggs. Marcia in Wyoming

    Butternut squash is good! Don't know why it is hard to give it away. Maybe you should try selling it. I found that people value things they have to buy. I used to take all kinds of squash into the office for free and no one took them. When I let my daughter set up a roadside stand, people bought them. Next year, have your granddaughters set up a stand.


I love comments!
