When Life Gives You Lemons

Surprise, surprise...someone at my local garden center must have either been confused or decided to have a good time at the expense of naive gardeners--as several of the six packs I bought last spring were mismarked. So instead of cucumbers, I got butternut squash--instead of zucchini, I got acorn squash. The leaves are similar and I was duped. The finished product is not similar--and now I have more squash than I know what to do with. Squash soup anyone! The good thing, squash is a good keeper--so I'll be able to enjoy food from the garden on Thanksgiving--maybe even Christmas.
