Field Notes What an interesting season! After a warm fall and grey December we have moved into the deep cold of winter. This signals the end of harvest in the greenhouse. Ken is planting for winter salad mixes - shoots leaves and sprouts. He has been working on a germination and growing cabinet as our grey December affects size of greens.
Winter squash is a mainstay of our January diet. I cut and remove seeds and cook either on stove or oven. First meal is hot with butter and then I peel and save for warming in butter or sesame oil or even a bit of curry. Then Ken might use some for a pie or I might make squash bread or cookies. And then it is squash soup - nothing better!
