Winter Squash Wonderland

This year has been amazing for the winter squash at the farm. We have never seen anything like it. The enormous size of the plants, the multitude of happy bees visiting them and the bounty of production has been a wonder to behold. We will start harvesting the Delicata, Carnival and Red Curry next week. I baked a Delicata last night and the texture was smooth, dense and satisfying. They have all sized up beautifully. It is exciting to have them finishing off but I am going to miss the jungle of verdant green that the plants create on the farm.
