Like much of the country, we're COLD! And, we're getting a little snow. I've been waiting for my December garden tour photos hoping for some snow. Maybe I'll take them tomorrow.
The main thing I'm doing in the garden these days is feeding the wildlife.
A friend gave me some dried ears of corn from their fields so even the squirrels will get to dine this winter. I hope to get some cute photos of them.
All the containers that are going to be cleaned out for the season are clean and stored. I'm tending to the plants I brought in for the winter. A few geraniums have died, but the others look very happy and are starting to grow into each other.
We are deep into Christmas plans and activities. Our city's Christmas parade is tonight. We will bundle up for that and then my wonderful husband's company Christmas party follows. It's a casual affair which is good as I'm going in snow boots and multiple layers of clothing.
Here is the candy roaster squash harvest for the year. Love the colors.
I got the seeds from a friend and gave them a try this year. The vines wrapped everywhere! The leaves were huge and the fruits even bigger.
I simply cut one in half, scooped out the seeds and roasted it in a pan under aluminum foil with a little water in the pan at 350 degrees for about an hour. It came out super soft. Simply scooped it out with a big spoon. Tried a little honey on some and a little butter on some. Both were great. Next time, I think I'll bake one with brown sugar.
