So we're coming to the end of our summer squash crop but at the same time our little turnip seedlings are doing quite well. As usual while sowing the seeds with Mae her and Beth planted too many too close together so today they will work at thinning the seedlings out so that we have a successful harvest. Beth is home with Mae today and preserving acorn squash for the winter. The acorn squash doesn't keep long after harvest like butternut squash does so they will be baking and mashing them to freeze. None of the squash goes to waste as one of our favorite parts is the seeds! It's a labor of love but we separate the seeds, soak and rinse them and lightly season with salt and pepper and bake. The seeds make for a low cost healthy snack!
Dan spent last night labeling all the candles he made the previous few nights. Scents include Pumpkin Crunch Cake, Spiced Apple Cider, Maple Nut Fudge, Birthday Cake, Country Cabin, and of course Smores! A few more tweaks to our web store as well.
