I made this butternut squash pasta recipe last night, and although roasting and pureeing the squash takes a bit of time, it was worth it!

NEWS FROM THE FARM
winter squash

Global warming is a myth in certain circles and on our farm we have escaped a killing frost thus far. We Have had 2 light frosts that set a few things back but still have some of our summer crops still going such as squash. Looking out in the forecast it is possible we will have a killing frost next Saturday as it needs to go down to 28 for 4 hours to be considered a killing frost.

We continue to bring in winter storage crops and clean up the fields and winterize the farm before the majority of our help returns to Egypt. The first few guys start going home the first week of November. Haifa and I will be done with markets on the 11th of November and will be planning to visit relatives overseas. It has been an incredible season again: cold, hot, cold, and now warmish. Stay tuned for information on the winter share. Enjoy some of the scenes from the farm this week:
