Squash Success

Those are some big leaves

The butternut squash are doing great and there’s no sign of the pest that decimated every attempt at summer squash. I guess it helps that butternut are resistant to bore bugs. I should have put the plants into cages though, they have spread through half the garden and over the rosemary plant. Next year.

Here are a few shots of the garden.

Get red pepper

Get red, peppers

See the tomatoes get it

And take a peak at the final garlic harvest. Time to start braiding and drying.

That is a lot of garlic

    But you’ll use some of the garlic fresh, right? It’s fab that way!


  2. Looks awesome, all around…so glad you finally had luck with the squash! We’re so far behind that I don’t even have zucchini yet…

    YOur harvest is impressive. I am in Ohio and used yellow squash and zucchini from Erika’s garden and it is so wonderful when everything is so fresh. Only problem is the yield isn’t spread out and you are oversupplied a bit.

  5. Wow! I can’t wait to see you the fruits of your labour in all of your delicious dishes. Your stock of garlic should hold you off to at least next week, what do you think?
