It is end of summer here in Canada, and it was a good summer! Very thankful to see all the growing and ripening. Now at the end it all really comes together. Seeing the fruits makes me so thankful to the one who created it all and promised:
“So long as the earth exists, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22
It is so encouraging to go into the garden and see, smell, and taste the promise of the Lord God. He has not changed, He keeps his promise and we can trust Him.

hey anna, what are you ‘fall’ planting?
I have planted greens (like spinach) and reddish outside. Indoors I planted lots of salads and some kohlrabi. Also a few cucumbers in the greenhouse, not sure if they will make it, it is so cold right now.
Firstly I must say that discovering your website is like striking gold! I live in Northern Alberta and it is SO hard to find zone 3 gardening advice that goes beyond trees and flowers.
Now, I have a question for you: How do you preserve your spaghetti squash? Do you keep it in a cold room or do you have any other magical tricks up your sleeves? 🙂
Welcome Sandra, we love fellow cold climate gardeners. We store the spaghetti squash in the cold room. It stores like other squash very well. But, if in doubt you can also bake and freeze it. See the Meatballs recipe, it can easy be frozen.
