There and Back



Holy shit people, time has wings over here. Since we last talked, work ate my head, we traveled to West Virginia for the family reunion, and then work ate my head again. Can you guess which part was my favorite? Right. I actually have to go try to get some of my head back, so I leave you with just a small selections of the many faces of Osh. This kid's face is so expressive, we can (and do) watch him for hours at a time. Face TV.












Be well out there...

These are SO fab! How do I love those big hands, let me count the ways....I am missing that little huggable fellow. I'll try to post my Bash photos up on Flickr this weekend. Work is also eating my head, we tape six commercials Friday morning.

Oh my goodness Heather, I'm in love with this little guy now. How must'nt you feel... Love to read your little stories about his amazing baby achievements (wish I could hear that giggle). Question for you: How do you know when the butternut Squash is ready to harvest? We are growing some this year and they look done, but I have not picked any yet. Warmly, Lotta.

Hello Lovely Lotta! Thanks for being sweet on our little guy...

Different books/people will tell you different things about butternuts: wait until all green/white color variation is completely gone, or look for cracking in the stem, or wait until your fingernail no longer punctures the outside of the squash, etc. But basically, unless something is munching on them (here sometimes squirrels take a bite) and as long as they are lying on the ground on top of something dry (ie, not lying on something that would encourage mold - you can put dry straw under them if you see any like that), they can pretty much hang out there for quite some time. Eliot Coleman is kind of our go-to guy for stuff, and the only thing he stresses is that it's good for them to cure pretty much right where they grew for at least two weeks. So we clip them and let them sit for at least that long... Hope that helps!

I think you officially have the cutest baby in Asheville. . . we fell in love with Oscar, as well as the chickens, as well as Asheville. I woke up today and immediately tricked myself into believing I was waking up in the valley near Warren Wilson College . . . and I was immediately in a good mood. :)

Ooooh, we love hearing that you two liked Asheville. C'mon down, we can be snarky together! ; )
