Bringing it all back home.
Yesterday I decided that it was time to bring home the bulk of the squashes. Can someone please remind me next year that this is a very prickly task, and that it might be worth actually wearing the gloves I’ve taken down the plot while I do it? I don’t want to end up with any more injuries, now do I?
I’ve left a few still on plants as the weather feels warm-ish and the plants are still looking OK, so I thought I’d give them a chance to grow at least a wee bit bigger. Nonetheless, we brought home a fair few.
Yesterday evening we tried one of the Golden Apple squashes. According to the blurb, they should be orange, but ours are green. Dark green. So I was a bit concerned that they would not make good eating. Still, undeterred, I chopped one in half, brushed it with a little oil and baked it in the oven. It turned out to be delicious.
Which is just as well because we’ve got about fifty of them.
