Rich with squash!

Here's BigD's garden a couple of weeks ago. 

We've had beets for supper several times and squash on a daily basis.  What are we doing with all that squash, you might ask?  I found a great squash casserole recipe that has sour cream, parmesan cheese, egg, and breadcrumbs.  It's very popular with all the kids!  And zucchini bread, of course, lots of it.

Big D is disappointed with the variety of cucumbers he planted this year and his tomatoe plants have not been producing like last year.  Maybe it's the heat.  But in addition to the squash and beets we've had onions and even a few strawberries.  And we're looking forward to lots of red cabbage!  Now, if only we could plant some wheat! 


  1. that is a lot of squash! yeah for good gardens!

  2. ohhhhhhhh please oh please give me the recipe for the Squash. I would love it! The garden looks awesome.....funny how it seems very appropriate for Big D to have another project. That man is visionary for sure ;)

  3. Oh wow!! What a neat garden you have going. Having a garden is on my list of things I want to get going around here. I know my children would have fun and learn a lot from growing their own vegetables. I need to put this at the top of that list! Enjoying your blog...what a wonderful family :)

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
