My husband keeps telling me how good the solar has been on our house so far. And indeed it has. It shouldn't be. It is spring time in Boston. It should be raining, cloudy, drizzly. Anything but wonderful sunny days in the high 60Fs and low 70Fs for days on end. And there is no end in sight to this gorgeous weather. I'm not complaining, but the garden is. I noticed I had lost two of my spring spinach plants.
The overwintered spinach is doing fine, but not growing as quickly as it ought to. I was afraid all my carrot seedlings with just seed leaves would fall over and die. So I watered the garden today. I just can't believe I had to water on May 1st.
I had to join Granny in dealing with my squash. It wouldn't last much longer. So half of the butternut squash got baked and pureed. Unlike Granny I puree mine in the blender. It is very smooth that way.
I have two Tetsukabuto squash left. I didn't do anything with them as my hands were getting tired and sore. I'll wait until tomorrow. I'll probably not even peel or cook these. I'll chop them into big cubes. They will be for soup later on. I'm not going to grow this kind of squash again. I think I'm going to stick to butternuts as they are so tasty and productive.
