I was so excited, I squeeled when I saw this beautiful spaghetti squash! It was hiding from me! ALL of the others have rotated off shortly after flowering. I've been picking the blossoms off after flowering passes in hopes of preventing the rotting and it seems to have helped this one! I will be thrilled if I can get just one healthy squash from this plant! I'll save the seeds and the plant will be stronger next year as it will have adapted somewhat to our climate and soil.
Ponderings....Sometimes God has to pick off things from us after they serve their purpose in order for us to continue to grow. Are we surrendered to his prunings?
Every year I learn new lessons from the garden... obviously gardening itself, but also many lessons in life, faith and nurturing.
