Squash House Farm Report

I may have been quiet on the blogging front, but it's been plenty busy here at Squash House Farms!  Mr. Squash and I went away for a few days and when we returned there were lots of things ready to pick.
This is the first decent tomato harvest of the summer.  I plan to make a tomato tart I saw HERE.  The blueberry crop continues to produce!  Mr. Squash has been picking for well over a month now.  I've frozen quarts and quarts of these prescious gems so far.  Needless to say I'll be baking endless desserts this fall and winter!
These cucumbers (English and regular) were just fingerlings when we left Tuesday morning.  Friday afternoon they were ready to pick!
I transformed some of them into refirgerator pickles.  
I harvested my Ginger Gold apple tree on Saturday.  This is the first ever apple crop here at the Squash House!  You're looking at 7 1/2 gallons of these green beauties.  
What do you do when you pick apples?  Make pie!  Ginger Gold's make the BEST apple pie ever.
I'll leave you today with a photo of the full moon between our maple trees.
