Sprawling Spaghetti Squash Surprise

Short Garden Update!

We've had a LOT of rains, these past 8 days, so, this is a short garden update! This morning, I found the Spaghetti Squash sprawling along the top of my garden fencing.

The top vine of one of the four plants for my Spaghetti Squash shot out in a series of three more Squash. One, (pictured below the window above) may end up being sterile, that is, Not Fertilized. It looks like the bloom is off the little budding fruit, and it is difficult to tell if it had enough time while open to get pollinated. The other two have their blooms still attached, though not yet opened.

Below There seem to be many more blossoms already opening on other Spaghetti Squash plants. For those who are not familiar, Spaghetti Squash are named for the well known pasta. when you harvest the squash, slice it down the middle, lengthwise, and bake in the oven with a little olive oil. When oven roasted, take a fork, and "spin" inside the stringy flesh of the squash. The flesh comes out, as if you are twirling a fork in a bowl of long thin spaghetti. It makes a wonderful meal by itself topped with some pasta sauce, or can be served alongside other main courses as a side dish.

Above I spent only a brief amount of time outside this morning, but, I can see a few nice blossoms on one of my Cucumber plants. I can where many more will be coming soon, on this and the other cucumber.

Below The Purple Cherokee Tomato are growing larger!

Above Sometime this weekend, I will be picking fresh Sweetie 100 Cherry Tomato!

I started all this, back in the deep parts of February, when the snows outside were blowing, and the temperatures were below Freezing! Sometimes, it is hard when it is cold, snowy, and the days are really short and darkness comes mid afternoon. It's hard seeing the garden in bloom in February. It's hard knowing what it feels like, to pick fresh food only a few steps form my back door. But, days like today? ALWAYS feel good.

I love feeding my family fresh, home nurtured food,
grown from my own hands, with love!
