Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. My garden has been so much fun this summer and also very productive. This is a rampicante squash. I measured it and it is 40 inches long.
I took this picture just a few days ago. Yesterday it was touching the ground so I harvested it.
This is what it looks like when cut. The seeds are in the rounded part on the bottom. It makes really good fried squash. I breaded and froze 12 meals from it yesterday and still have some left. I have already harvested about 5 of these and there are many, many more up there. Amazing!
I also made some squash bread and butter pickles. There is a mixture of different squash in there. Mostly patty pan,a few yellow squash and zucchini.
Also made squash relish from yellow squash. My squash has been extremely productive this year. I fought a hard battle with the squash bugs but it was definitely worth it.
I have many gallons of breaded squash in the freezer for fried squash this winter. Also many, many bags of shredded squash.
I have did a few bags of these pepper poppers. I do a mixture of 1 block of cream cheese, 1 cup shredded cheese and about a tsp of cumin. Mix the up good and fill the peppers. Then wrap in bacon. Freeze on a cookie sheet, then bag up for later use. These are so good and convenient.
I also made this cowboy candy. I do not have any jalapenos so this is made from the nadapeno peppers. Hopefully they will be good. I only did a few jars because I have to save my peppers for something else.
Oh yes, that’s right! It’s tomato season. I can a lot of tomatoes. Salsa, pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce and just plan canned tomatoes. Tomatoes are a staple here and one of my favorite things to can!
Just a little peek into Dave’s project. As you can tell, we are using sawmill lumber. Poplar to be exact. It is beautiful wood but has proven to be a challenge to cut.
I will have more pictures on this as we progress.
One exciting thing happened yesterday. This blimp flew over our house. It was pretty cool to see one.
That’s all for now. Enjoy your day and God bless.
