    What are these leaves Eliza? So interesting! Are they naturally that color? Wow.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Aren’t they gorgeous? They really are silver and so healthy. Delicata squash that sprung from my compost bin. A gift from nature!

      • Kathy Sturr says:

        All that beauty in the leaves and offering up tasty squash, too?! You are a lucky gal! I think I’ll try some delicata next year. (;

      • Eliza Waters says:

        I highly recommend it. It has an edible skin, so no tedious peeling. It rose above butternut to become my favorite and that is saying a lot. But for a winter squash it isn’t as long storing as the others. So we just eat it up as quick as we can. No problem there. 😉

  3. I would love to know what the leaves are as well. You are our gardening guru, Eliza 🙂

  4. Let’s guess what it is…it looks like a pumpkin or squash of some kind to me!

    I have never seen such delicate beautiful leaves, Eliza!! What are they? How incredible the way Mother paints Her glory! ❤

    Such beautiful leaves. I had to check your tags to see what they were. I might have to grow some delicata squash next year. Somewhere I have a recipe for a delicata squash pie that I made once a few years ago when the farmer’s market carried them. It was super yummy, and I’d love to make it again.
