How's that for a title that grabs your attention?'s a picture of our butternut squash crop. I have visions of brown sugar/butter and some soup dancing in my head. Yum!


  1. Yum!- thats a great haul - i have just planted the seeds fo our butternuts - only one has started to unfurl as yet. we make a yummy pumpkin (we call them butternut pumpkins here) soup - Asian/Thai style with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, chilli, palm sugar and fish sauce.

  2. Love butternut pumpkin soup and I sure could make a lot with that haul.

  3. Kaffe Fassett (sp?) based part of a quilt design on a pic similar to yours. Lovely harvest. Do I expect you to arrive on my doorstep with one?

  4. Hi Mags,
    I read what Paula wrote about your squashes and just had to drop by but then when I saw your haul, well, I now have to ask what your secret is, please, I tell you what, if you can tell me how comes you grew so many so well, I'll let you in on what I do with mine.
    I live in the South of the Uk. Last year I grew quite a few. Not anything like the numbers you have. this year I couldn't get them off to anything like a good start and in the end I had loads of plants but only one fruit. I love butternuts and I just want to grow loads for the winter. Please let me in on the secret to your obvious success. Hopefully waiting with my recipe to exchange. Tricia


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
