Harvesting Lettuce Seeds

I don’t always save seeds but when I get something i my garden I really like the taste of I make sure to keep it going. This spring I ended up with a salad mix seed packet that came in a large seed order I purchased. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted and how well it grew, it didn’t bolt as quickly as the other lettuces when it got hot out and I got several cuts from it before it started getting bitter.

Simple Is Better

I had been wondering what I was going to do with all the yellow crookneck squash I had this year, I was trying it in a whole bunch of recipes but I just wasn’t using it up fast enough. I’ve already cut, blanched and frozen plenty and gave a bunch away, it’s amazing how productive these few plants are.

After to talking with someone about the best way to use it they mentioned they like to just cut it in half, clean out the seeds, sprinkle just a little brown sugar on it and put it in the oven on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet cut side up, bake it for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until it’s good and soft and just eat it like that. I went and tried it like that right away and found it is now my favorite way to eat it. Who would have thought the simplest way was the best way.

The Garden My Rabbits Planted

I’ve talked about it several times so I thought it was about time I showed it to you. Last year I was raising a few rabbits in a colony rather than cages and throughout the year I would occasionally throw them a few scraps like zucchini, pumpkins, cantaloupe, watermelon and sunflower heads to munch on. Turns out they planted a pretty awesome garden in there that I never had to water or nurture in any way. Take a look.
