Anna with 2017 butternut squash harvest.

Even after a Summer of neglect the butternut squash harvest was still decent.

Wow! Do they keep well in a root cellar?

Funny squash story...as a child I decided I hated squash and would not eat it, then as I got older I discovered I actually liked it. However, the line in the sand had been drawn!

I snuck bites. Now, as a grown man, I prepare squash with lots of butter and brown sugar, likely defeating it's nutritional properties, but it is sooooooo good!

Do you or Mark have a food you just don't like and never have?
