The winter squash vines are beginning to crowd the walkways and are taking over the field. Hidden underneath the big leaves and bright yellow flowers are beautiful baby squash, starting to take on their varieties distinct shape.
With all the tasty summer produce filling our table its hard to believe that fall is on its way. I expect the first harvest of our winter squash to occur in early September. Even though the weather is hot and I’m loving my daily tomato sandwiches, I’m starting to dream of butternut squash soup and pumpkin pie.
