Lady Godiva….

… lives on our neighbors’ farm and she looks like THIS:

C'mon, she's a squash...

It was her first appearance of the season. And as if that weren’t enough, we split her open to taste her hulless seeds:

Lookee the seeds...

Surprisingly sweet and tasty they are, fresh and fruit-like. But Farmer Jon says her flesh is bitter. Hmm…

Yes, this is the kind of food we grow down here in the deserts of Nuevo Mexico. ¡Aye Carumba!

  1. Ooooh, you’re having adventures without me! We’ll exchange stories upon my return. Just took a nighttime trek through the cloud forest…. saw a few kissing bugs among other creatures.

  2. Jerry,
    Veggies called Lady Godiva and kissing bugs!?? weirdos and their living spaces!! ay carumba!

  3. Hmm, it’s a bit early to harvest winter squash. Maybe it needs to stay on the vine longer to develop sugars. Or, you could try salting the flesh to leach out the bitterness.
