We have a niece and nephew living on Colorado's Western Slope. Visiting them has been an important part of the time we are spending here.
One day we visited Becky and Thad in Grand Junction. Becky has lots of chickens.
In addition to raising chickens, she has a huge vegetable garden. There are several varieties of squash. I think this is butternut.
This is a patty pan squash. I have seen them when watching Food Network shows, but we had never eaten them.
So Becky picked a couple for us. Boy, are they every good!
We moved on to Montrose where we visited our nephew Blake and Julie. They, too, have chickens.
