We Sold 200 Pounds of Squash on Valentine's Day

Most people get a card for their sweet heart and a dozen roses for their beloved on Valentines day.

I did something unique for valentines day today. I sold 200 pounds of squash.

We have some friends from the farmers market that sell to restaurants in the Twin Cities. They noticed we had a lot of squash at market last weekend and wondered if we had some extra we could sell. Most people are out at this time of the season.

We were blessed with a bumper crop of very high quality squash and so we have about 500 pounds left in the middle of February. That has never happened before. We are always out by this time.

I'd have to say this is one of the most unusual Valentines Day things I have done.
