So lovely. So peaceful.
I'm cooking up a storm inside while the rain quietly turns to snow outside. I'm making sugar from my first sugar beet harvest (! So excited!), old school salt ferment garlic pickles and saur kraut, preparing and freezing more squash, a hearty #zucchinorampicante soup for lunch and dinner today, and drinking copious amounts of #yorkshiregold 😆
We luckily got more rain than snow through the night so we've only accumulated an inch or two so far. Hopefully that's all the snow we get before it warms back up this week. 💗
3 weeks old - 47 inches long - just starting to make the switch to becoming a winter squash (skin turns from light green to a light peachy shade & flesh turns from white to orange) #tromboncinosquash#zucchinorampicante @bakercreekseeds

"Zucchino Rampicante Squash (C. moschata) 70 days. The famous Italian heirloom vining zucchini and pumpkin; long slender 15-inch fruit have a flat bulb at the bottom. They are one of the best eating summer squash: very tender, mild and sweet tasting. The flavor is superb! This squash is also great as winter squash. The Italians use it for stuffing in gnocchi and ravioli; the flesh is rich and flavorful, great for baking and pies! The vines produce good yields of this great all-purpose squash. The mature fruit grow very long. This one is in very high demand at specialty markets." #zucchinorampicante#rampicantesquash#rampicante
