In 2012, on the plains of Northern Arizona, two families joined forces and began the trials and tribulations of building a small family farm with nothing in the bank but love.Tortuga Thursday comes on Friday this week. Not sure where this week got off to but I lost a day some where. I think it was just so jam packed with drama, big and small. To name a few:
- My Rosette, Amanda in the Summer, released for an exclusive three months on Amazon. Lots of promo scheduling involved.
- Sadi's first tooth broke through.
- We had, maybe, a processing issue with the cucumbers but that's still being debated.
- More rain causing various problems like the tomatoes slowing their ripening and a quagmire of muddy fields to make harvesting an adventure.
- Medical issues with several family members (no one under this roof).
- I had problems to work through on my current manuscript.
- We have tons of peppers, so Christie devised a wonderful hot sauce making process. And the hot sauce is fantastic.
|Golden/Butternut and Golden|
Some Golden Squash crossed with Butternut. The crossed one has a slightly tougher shell like the Butternut but does great on the grill.
The Spaghetti Squash has definitely been messing around with the
Zucchini gets around as evidenced by these Butternut.
We made a discovery that saves time. We've frozen the Golden Squash raw and when thawed it cooks up fine.
