Chickens Playing and Butternut Lasagna

     Fall is here and things are winding down. The only veggies still in the garden are carrots, one pumpkin, and maybe some turnips. I let the chickens, who are producing three eggs a day now, feast on some remaining tomatoes that I never got to before I go into the garden and clear out all of the dead plants. We've already had a few light frosts, so it's officially time to start cleaning up.

     I managed to harvest two butternut squashes from the garden before the frost hit. They were delicious in   a butternut squash lasagna. I got the recipe online from It involves way more effort than I usually like to put in, not to mention dirtying every pot, pan, and food processor in your house, but was delicious. Also, it makes a whole pan of lasagna so it's worth it since you won't have to cook for a few days.
I grew this!

I was tempted to eat the roasted squash before it made it to the lasagna.

The filling was mushrooms and spinach sauteed in garlic and white wine.
