Butternut Weekend

Harvested the butternut squash today. We had maybe a dozen plants, and our total harvest was 10 squash. Not the biggest squash you've ever seen either. I think the problem lies with fertilizing. We had a little compost on them, but we could have done much better. I think I'll dig up the bed and mix in as much compost as I can get my hands on. For the winter I'll try laying a thick layer of leaves over the bed to keep weeds from sprouting.

Also got 2 lb, 6 oz of tomatoes today. Jill turned that into a nice tomato sauce.

Also whipped up 2 batches of hot sauce, one red, one green. Used about 5oz of peppers for the red sauce, somewhat more for the green.
