Hilton Farm Produce

While we were gone to Hawaii our cucumbers and zucchinis have grown like crazy. Before we left they were just flowers. Now 7 days later they look like monster sea snails. Things grow fast in Saranap.

Morris is examining the monster veggies.

We just returned from one week vacation in Kona. We stayed at the Hayashis' time share. I played 4 rounds of golf game, and George did only 2 rounds. Anyway it was a wonderful time.

Kabochas are coming

It's been 4 months since I planted a single kabocha seedling. It now covers about 25 sq. ft. of ground. For the past 3 weeks I have tried every cooking recipe for kabocha.....creamy kabocha soup, miso soup, baked sliced kabocha, boiled Japanese style kabocha, sliced and sauteed with butter and sugar, tempura style, etc. I have not made kabocha pie or mushed kabocha yet. If any of the readers have more recipes I would appreciate your suggestion.
