Editor's Note: We had too many butternut squash in our garden last year that we totally lost interest in them. We're still trying to gauge how much to plant and what our likely harvest will be when weather is factored in. Kind of a weird year altogether in our garden. Wish I had more eating pumpkins. But we've harvested loads of tomatoes, yellow squash and beans.
Unfortunately, a photo of Emma has still not materialized in our archives. I believe she is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in Frewsburg though. RIP Aunt Emma.
