Squash seems to have become our signature crop.
The first year of the garden, we harvested 39 butternuts and about 70 acorns. Last year we intentionally planted fewer plants, but we still ended up with a tonne of squash (although I didn’t bother counting them… or at least didn’t record the count).
This year, we’re finally approaching a manageable number. This year’s squash harvest was 35 acorns and 11 butternuts.
Plenty for soups, side dishes and more. (Along with being our signature crop, they’re our signature food that we love to eat). I’m looking forward to trying this for my lunches.
Garden clean out is happening slowly. I pulled all of the vines off of our A-frame trellis and sent them to the compost pile. (I did not do any weeding.)
Weeds or not, I’m calling the centre axis of the garden done for the season (as good as it gets is how we’re rolling this year).
Four quadrants and the perimeter raised beds still to go.
Hopefully I wrap those up before the snow arrives.
