Pinnah.... I am almost skeert to go lookin for calabasitas b/c I always find more than
I can carry and lots of em are escapees...and man...that thing is WILD man Wild....
Is yours an adventure?

ROFL.
I was deep back in picking raspberries amongst the hollyhocks and booted something...
dang thing was jack-o-lantern sized! 
I left it in honor of the Calabasón..or would it be Calabsota?
Anyway, yea, they are wild; only fruiting on the end of the growing vine.  Good early season squashcita.

On another note, thumbs up to the Ozette fingerling tater.  Wow is it good roasted.

I bought a stainless grilling pan and we discovered the joy of garden grilling
I need one of those! Did some stuffed poblanos ala euge yesterday; I am always losing stuff down through the grill. ::)

Grew those a few years ago.  Ended up I was the only one who would eat them.

 8) With the monsoon this season, it is an epic year for fungi freaks around here. 
I probably saw 200lbs of Chantys last week in the spruce fir. :o

Goods from the woods are the best!


First day of fall, first real snow on the peaks....first yellow brandywine. ::)

Had some great mini pizzas last night...pestoish sauce, maters, zucchini, broccoli, peppers.  Pretty good.
Harvesting raspberries every other day now and stocking the freezer.

Cheers to the spoils of gardening!

Them is nasturtiums. They are flowers and have a really nice peppery flavor. nice colorful addition to salad... or just colorful salad I guess. If you pick the flower buds you can pickly them and make faux capers

I thought so but then the spicy comment got me wondering if they were something else. I think of them as peppery, not quite the same way as I think of spicy. Thanks for confirming.

Coffee cherry is starting to come in.  As are macnuts.  Pineapples are winding down.  Early season tangerines are starting to show some color.  Scorpion peppers have set some fruit.

Avocados and ghost peppers are going ape-sh!t.  As someone here one said in reference to zucchini season up north - you gotta keep your car doors locked, or someone will put avocados in there.

I had a good crop of avocados this year, the best ever.  They were all gone about a month ago.  Grapefruits are getting bigger and the oranges are about half size right now.

Snows here too.  We just make it stay up above 9,000 ft. on Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea
