Garden’s bounty

My garden was moderately bountiful but it didn’t produce anything as large as this Hubbard squash.

This is a new food to me but is known by most people in the North Country. It’s a winter squash and reportedly very sweet. I’ll find out once I am able to wrestle it into the oven. My friend cut her’s with a band saw. I’m left with merely a bread knife.

My garden did grow a bunch of carrots and I harvested them and the lettuce and mustard greens. I left the last arugula crop in place because it looked so happy where it was.

My lichens fermented for over a month and I tried to dye a wool/alpaca blend with them. For naught. I got slightly beige.

But my pandas are playful and a success.
