You can take THAT to the bank.




That's what happens when you live in a small community.

You share.

It has become tradition. 
Mr G fills the truck with our home grown Lakota and Hubbard Squash and drives them to our local bank.






 Everyone at the bank gets to pick their favorites.  






The red are Lakota Squash...my favorite. 
The green are Hubbards.





 Because we save the seeds from year to year we can see an evolution of new color combinations. 
 The bees are to blame.






 You have heard of Mutation.  Without mutation life can not continue.  

We have no idea what kind of squash this is (maybe you do).  Two of them showed up in our squash patch for the first time this year.  

We have not introduced any new seeds into our field.  
Have we come up with a new variety?  

Can't wait to see how they taste.  









Make every moment count.  
Life is short, eat dessert first.

  1. Gina, taking those amazing squash to the bank is a beautiful tradition. So interesting to see how over the years you are seeing many variations from the original seeding.

    What colors in the squash and the trees! xo

    p.s. Thanks also for the pictures from your trip. Things have been a bit hectic for me...and I didn't get around to commenting before now.

    1. Dear Frances, We tried the "new variety" of squash and it is not going to make us wealthy. We will not be saving these seeds. Their texture and flavor is just not good enough.
      But we are enjoying both the Lakota and the Hubbard varieties. Wish I could send you a sample.
      Thank you for your visit.
