A little more harvest

We dug the rest of the potatoes today, and goofball that I am, I weighed them. We planted about 9 lb. of seed potatoes this year, and harvested 95 pounds of potatoes for eating. I'm really happy with that number, and with all the fresh potatoes.

The gophers found the roots to the spaghetti squash, and they're trying to find the ones for the butternut squash, so we harvested our winter squashes today as well. I hope we like that spaghetti squash, because we sure do have a lot of it. I've never had it before...I got the seed packet for a dime and thought, 'why not?'. I hope they're good...any recipes to share?

I brought in a few more cured onions. Only three pounds in storage so far, but I still have quite a few curing under the deck, plus there are still a lot growing in the garden. The harvest column (to the right) has been updated, if you're interested. We still have plenty to harvest and bring in. It looks like the late peaches will be ready any day now, and check out our big pumpkin!

We got a snazzy new wagon this weekend. I like it a lot, and it looks like I'm not the only one.

Just roast or steam the spaghetti squash like you would any other, then scrape the "strings" out of the skin and serve topped with a chunky marinara sauce and parmesean cheese. Or butter and brown sugar is always good too. :)

Sounds great - thank you! I've been wondering if they have much flavor of their own...would they be good in something like a fritatta?

It's got more of an acorn squash flavor than a summer squash flavor, IMO. It might be OK in fritatta, but I associate that more with summer squash.

What I like to do with spaghetti squash is, cut it in half, scoop the seeds, put cut-side down in a baking dish half filled with water. Cover it and let it cook until it is fork tender.

Scrap out the flesh with a fork into a casserole dish, it will come out as stringy. Add some butter and brown sugar and broil for a few minutes to melt the toppings. YUM!!! It's so delicious I want to come over and eat some (:
