    Blue Hubbard and Butternut Squash generally keep for a long time off the vine. I don't think butternut has a particularly noticeable flavor even under the best of circumstances. I used to grow them but would get far more than I would eat so they disappeared from my planting routine.

    I saw daffodil leaves poking up yesterday and this morning I saw the first robins of the year...time to start planning the garden!
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Yep going to be starting some seeds indoors tomorrow. I have a high fail rate with that for some reason so I will keep plenty to direct sow just in case

    Re: Gardening

    My yard is a mess. My garden is a mess. I've been so busy with work and my kids (seriously, they're all old, it was supposed to be better by now!) that I have zero time to devote to the garden. I feel like I'm going to get a letter from the homeowner's association any day now. BUT I planted some hollyhock seeds by the driveway last year, because I remember my grandmother had hollyhocks and they were big and beautiful, so I thought it would be a good idea up against a tall fence (because they're tall, right? Maybe I was just short way back then.) Anyway, last year they didn't bloom of course. And they looked pretty pitiful. I was pretty resigned to them dying at some point. But we had some freezing temps and I cleaned up any dead leaves and just let them be. Now we've had some steady rains the last few weeks and those suckers are HUGE. I'm excited! Now I just have to be diligent about watering them if it doesn't rain. That'll be the hard part I've heard that hollyhocks will spread and oh boy I hope so. They are in a little spot that's perfect for spreading. They won't get very far, but if they fill up all that available space it'll be a garden blessing.

    Now that was good storytelling - yay! From very sad to memories to very happy! I hope they continue to bloom for you.
