SquashAfter chicken killing and preparation on Sunday there was just enough time for squash harvesting. The butternut squash in the Meso-American garden (see here) did pretty well.

Autumn mesoAmerican gardenNow I just need to tidy up the garden ready for winter.  Behind the dying squash plants are some of my winter brassica and the raspberries which are still going wonderfully.

After picking the squash I popped them in the greenhouse to cure for a few weeks and then they will be ready for winter storage. Expect lots of squash recipes soon.
