We have a bumper crop of cushaw! 21 to be exact (plus one we gave away). They are from heirloom seeds purchased from Baker’s Creek, and grown completely organically with no fertilizers (apart from a tiny bit of chicken poop!) and no pesticides. I will bake, puree and freeze so we can have my favorite of all pies: cushaw pie! If you’ve never had cushaw pie, think pumpkin pie only cushaw tastes a bit milder. I bake it just as I would pumpkin pie. This pie never sticks around for long in this family, so I am tickled I’ll be able to freeze so much we’ll have plenty to last us through the winter and beyond.
We are still waiting on our tomatoes and sweet potatoes.
How’s your garden?
