Bringing in the -- squash!

The last of the farmshare today.  Over till next Spring.  We have a sparkling day of sunshine between storms -- a nor'easter due to arrive tomorrow.  But meanwhile, here's the harvest of the day. 

Duncan examines all incoming produce with care, and usually tears into the green leafy stuff, but he can't quite figure out these squash. 

And Dolliver Nation, all organized by the kitchen radio to listen to the election returns, have hedged their bets.  As Call Me Michelle explained "whichever way it goes, il faut cultiver notre jardin."  She's been reading our French blogistas' comments!  so since guarding the crops is the nearest they get to cultivating a garden, this is their best shot.

Wise group.


  1. Wishing you the best outcome of your election. So farmshare is over with, is it? Well, you had a good haul by the look of it, something to look forward to next summer. Here in Cowtown there is a snow sky threatening, with temperatures going down to -19C on the weekend (2 below zero in your parlance), then improving next week. The sun sets behind the ridge across the river at 4:30 in the afternoon - the season has definitely changed! - Jean

  2. Nice to know the squashes survived the storm - a bit of brightness to admire.


Thanks so much for commenting. I read all comments with care and much pleasure!
