  • Today (Saturday) has been an exhausting day. I wish I could say it was in the garden but the closest I came to it as helping our daughter move some of her potting soil and pots with soil to her new home.

    Maybe tomorrow?

  • The weather tellers said there was rain moving in this weekend but I've yet to see any...It's starting to seem like I'll be watering the strawberries by this evening unless it changes it's mind and finally lets loose.

    I have plans to oven roast some of that fuzzy melon for dinner tonight...

    I'd treat it like I would zucchini or summer squash normally but, this time I will peel it and cut it into bite size pieces, along with a few golden and red beets I picked up at Whole Foods and a Japanese yam they will get all tossed with salt pepper, a small sprinkle of garlic powder, onion powder, and good olive oil.

    All spread out with a parchment lined half sheet pan and placed in the 350 degree preheated oven until tender(about 50 min...

    Can't wait!...and that will be tonight's dinner!...probably with a little leftover.

  • Exactly. I'd treat it just like zucchini. It has a real mild flavor. The ones I have are mature with the wax coating. They should last a long time. These are starting to become my favorite squash--even more than Cushaw!
