  1. It all looks so beautiful! I have a question for you. There is a volunteer plant growing in my compost and I thought maybe it was a Butternut squash, but it is green. I’ve never grown butternut before. Are they green before they turn yellow?

  2. Oh it’s so nice to see your harvest! I suppose by the next time I’m there it will all be gone, but HOPEFULLY you will have preserved it all! We just had lots of rain, and everything greened up again, but it was too late for most of the crops.

  3. My goodness you have a large array of yummy stuff growing in your garden! I’m so loving all that garlic!!!! Wish I had such a green thumb as yours.

    1. Thank you DD! We are hoping to have enough Garlic so that we wont have to buy any , we arent there yet , we do love garlic 😉 we also need enough to plant for next year, I think 200 may be the magic no for us…last year was 160!
