Almost a year ago I planted these squash, butternut and delicata. My two favorites. I had enough to store for the winter and take a few as needed from a basket in the garage. A couple of weeks ago I used the last of the squash from last year's garden. I decided to clean the seeds, dry them a bit, and then wrap them in a coffee filter until time to plant again. I have never done this before, but it just made sense to save the seeds. I wasn't even sure if I needed to dry them. So this is kind of an experiment. I loved that these squash were mini, not that they were suppose to be, but that is just how they grew under my thumb. Perfect for one person and great in a lunch box! I am thinking this is like full circle or almost full circle. When I harvest next fall it may be full circle then. Right now I am excited to think of seeds, dirt, fertilizers, time in the garden, watering, weeding and harvesting.
Oh the good things in life that excite me...The garden and the full circle that it creates.
