The flesh of most varieties is firm enough to sauté or stew in chunks (fibrous spaghetti squash is an exception), but once cooked it also can be pureed to a very fine consistency; and its moderate sweetness makes it suitable for both savory and sweet preparations, from soups or side dishes to pies and custards.

  • i cannot believe you JUST microwaved it……….. microwaves destroy all the nutrients in your food…….so you are losing every thing in you think you are eating……..stick it in the oven on bake 350F for 20 minutes or less…….Do not microwave it and expect to retain the nutrients

  • This is incredible!!

    I had a couple store bought mini spaghetti squash. I opened up the second one to find sprouted seeds. I’ve planted about a dozen in seed trays. One is now in the ground near my beans. I have no idea what I’m doing. God gets all the credit here. I’m a first time gardener and every thing I’ve planted is growing.

    I’m excited to see this video. Please keep us updated.

    God Bless You!

  • Lord Wanda, I thought I was the only woman still wearing an apron. Thank you for showing me, I’m not alone. I’ve yet to try spaghetti squash. I will have to give them a try. Thank you for sharing. Peace

  • I had about 20 plants volunteer from spaghetti squash I composted. I thinned it down to about 6 plants. I have the same thing happening! I have more squash than I know what to do with! I just picked one prematurely and sauteed it in ghee… deeeelishous!

  • Hi Danny and Wanda. Did you run into any pickle worm trouble? I was excited about the spaghetti squash comething on my plants, and then they were attacked. The first one ready to harvest had only one hole. I thought it might be salvaged, but it was damaged too badly.

  • Wow that is beautiful squash! How is it that you don’t have squash bugs/stink bugs? I want to grow some squash, but the bugs are just awful!

  • I cut the squash first and take the seeds out. Then I lay the halves cut sides down on a flat surface, like a glass baking dish. 12 or so minutes later (skin pricks easily with a fork) I take it out and use a fork to scrape out the squash. Less of a pain cleaning out the seeds and I don’t have to stab the poor defenseless gourd.

  • I am fighting the white dust and lost 3 cucumber plants. I put in some more 8 plants next to the chicken yard. I did not know there was a problem and had planted 5 more further down from the first 3 plants. Now I am spraying with an organic dish soap twice a day. White tiny flys are eating my curly leaf kale so The 3 plants left get sprayed also.

  • Plants look great! That’s one of our favorites. It’s not unusual to get anywhere from 10-15 full size fruits from each plant. And we can usually get them to store for 3-4 months.

  • I looooooved it!!!!. I love squash and I love pasta, this is the best of both worlds!!!!!! It is very filling and delicious. Thanks

  • Love your personality! I like to be different and blend crunchy peanut butter with cumin essential oil and then mix in with spaghetti squash and some chopped celery. 😉

  • WOW! That reminds me of year-before-last when I planted 5 Cherokee Tan Pumpkin seeds. I got 25, but the chickens must have eaten at least that many.

  • WOWZER! You just might end up with a MILLION spaghetti squash!! Those are some HAPPY plants and are really thriving! That’s SO awesome and makes my heart happy! I am tickled for you! HOSS TOOL seeds ROCK! Sadly, I really don’t like spaghetti squash, but maybe their brand is good? The last one I made was like dried out, hard as a rock strings. YUK. I cooked it plenty too. Must have been something wrong with it, maybe picked too soon? I love Butternut, Acorn and most of all….. ButterCUP, but it’s difficult to find and grow. LOVE watching your videos!!!

  • How do you all do with excessive amounts of rain? I have some accidental spaghetti squash from a raised bed that I dismantled and used the compost soil as part of my large garden and now I have about 20 surprise sprouts throughout the garden. Here recently, we’ve been experiencing, in Southeast Texas, large amounts of rain and I just lost my first fruit to what looks like high water. We had several days of it and the fruit just looks water logged. It was no bigger than a small gherkin. Any tips you could lend to this amateur gardener for how to keep and save your fruit from the ground or water? I see yours are right on the ground but I’m curious if you have issues with rain or could it be something else I may be dealing with rather than water?

  • Hey y’all those spaghetti squash are a real blessing! You never answered my questions about where you get your beef and do they use GMO corn when they finish fattening them up? Have a blessed day!

  • Those squash look amazing. How long will they keep and how will you store them? It will take some time to go through 40-50, even if they’re “personal” size!

  • I’ve been watching you going on a year and I keep getting kick out scratching my head ��. Great video thanks for sharing your knowledge.
    Blessings and more Blessings to you and your family

  • The first year I planted spaghetti squash here they did very well. I had more than I knew what to do with. I might have to check out the small wonder to. I didn’t have enough space ready this year to plant any. Working on making a new garden now.
    I’m not far from you guys, up in Purvis. Where did you get your greenhouse? I’ve been wanting one but thinking about doing one with cattle panels because I wont need a big one due to my health.

  • I was excited about this video and talking about nutrients etc. UNTIL you said cook in your microwave. BIG HUGE no no. All that effort in focusing on health and nutrition and then through it into death of the veggie and your family-ugh

  • That’s so cool!!!!! I am going to have to buy them and try it out!!! Can’t wait to see the progress and whT you do to keep them stable as you eat through them!!

  • I about gave up on squash. As simple as they are to grow the squash vine borer, cucumber beatles, or stink bugs take them over. I havent had luck in years no matter what I spray. I try and keep it organic so I wont nuke the area with pesticides

  • I love spaghetti squash! O, if zucchini gets out of hand and grows huge, later on, you can let it get big, save the seed, use them like pumpkin seeds, and you can dehydrate your zucchini too, we dry the immature zucchini for later, would like to try this, it reminds me of a small winter squash and turning like thready inside like spaghetti squash. https://www.christinascucina.com/dried-zucchini-save-some-for-winter/

  • Danny, you can save your seeds from those if they are not GMO I love spaghetti squash because I can’t digest the heavy carbs either. You can do so many dishes with them. I dehydrate the cooked noodles and then dinner takes just a few minutes. Love love love them. I am eager to see what happens with these squash.

  • Hooray! Great Spaghetti Squash! Beautiful!! Never heard of single serving size..know where I’m gonna be buying seeds from now on! Jolly Green Giant spaghetti squash…lol

  • Congratulations on that harvest! We’ve almost stopped using regular pasta since learning how beneficial these squash are for health reasons. I often make “Spaghetti” using my home-made sauce. Have even dehydrated some of these squash as an experiment. Will be checking that later and if it works as I hope, I plan to dehydrating a bunch with the upcoming local harvest season. Thank you for sharing.

  • Not pasta. No way. Tried it, don’t like the crunch. Prefer acorn or butternut squash. Definitely not pasta in any way, shape or form. ��

  • Thank you Alyssia.Take care. Jesus loves everyone please seek His Face in these last days. Salvation is for today,tomorrow is uncertain without Jesus Times short.God bless

  • Microwaves are so awful for you. You aren’t just nuking your food, you are literally turning something healthy into nuclear waste. I threw out my microwave 5 years ago. Never felt better! Toaster ovens work wonders & keep your nutrients healthy!!

  • I’m so glad I watched this one, I saw someone else do it kinda complicated, theirs was easy but time consuming. I’m doing it this way, thanks.

  • Thanks! My husband asked me to make this for him and I had NO idea what he was talking about. Now I know how to shop for it and cook it!

  • We have some pumpkin seeds from last years Halloween pumpkin chunked in the back yard that came up a couple months ago that look just like these but 4 times the size and I’ve never planted anything in this area they are massive plants also 10 feet long and climbing up the fence same flowers same foliage I don’t understand, I was expecting an orange pumpkin ��.

  • I grow seminole and tan cheese pumpkins and cure them for about a week in the sun. They store for a year and the flavor is amazing. This will be my first year growing spaghetti squash and I would have cure them in the sun as well, thanks for setting me straight on that.

  • Oh Danny! I NEED to know how you make your spaghetti. I’ve been looking for a substitute spaghetti for a while now because I LOVE spaghetti. I tried just putting sauce on this and was not impressed. Perhaps I cooked it wrong. Please tell me how you make spaghetti using spaghetti squash. Thanks.

  • My husband and myself I love them we have grown the regular size but I’d like to try the mini mini ones but y’all going to love these replace pasta its delicious as pasta

  • thank you for posting this video, I bought 3 of them and Cant wait to make for my family.
    Can you Freeze these squash? and How long will this last in the frig. lets say If I make to much?

  • I have been doing this method for many years. It works great, the thing that I do different is I jab about 6 holes in it with an ice pick instead of a knife. Ice picks are also a bit safer (you can still find them at garage sales, thrift stores & flea markets. An awl like you use for leather tooling works good also).

  • I got a squash that just look like it from the outside but from the inside it was like normal squash not stringy and white in colour not yellow it was different from the inside…i couldn’t recognize a spaghetti squash if i see one…i guess:’ (

  • What variety of Pomegranate is your bush? How old is it? I have one, that is over 8 years old. And 9 more I rooted from limbs. Blooms but do not set fruit. We bought a different variety last year. It is about 3 foot tall this year. Bloomed. Hoping the bees pollinated the other tree.

  • Man I wish I could do this! Do you spray? I live in central FL and these would be DESTROYED by pickle worms/downy mildew/powdery mildew. Also are they the treated seeds? I grew a variety similar and got three squash

  • I find that you, Wanda and the farm are amazing. I like the way you try things and how you give your honest opinion. I would like to see later on how they look as a meal. May the Lord be with you and your farm. Thank you.

  • Hi, I have made this recipe, as well as the acorn squash recipes, several times and love them. More important, my husband loves them. Since eggplants are almost in season, I am wondering if you have any 3-2-1 recipes that involve eggplant. Thanks

  • Greetings from zone 10b. Awesome harvest! You are lucky I lost all my spaghetti squash… got eaten up by cut worms but my Hoss tools Butternut/Seminole pumpkin cross is doing great. Whats the name of that music track I heard? Nice touch.

  • Tried this microwave method and it worked and was delicious. So much lighter tasting and the texture is pleasant. Much better than the butternut squash i usually make. Which is a little too squashy tasting in my opinion.

  • I love the fact that you guys are just a few weeks ahead of me. Anytime I start wondering about something, you post a video teaching about the very thing!

  • If it has 8 net grams of carbs per cup, that has to be at least 30 calories as each carb contains 4 calories. You are stating 20 calories per cup. The numbers don’t correlate. Looking up the data, it appears it has 42 calories per cup. Your statements about carb values appear correct.

  • spaghetti squash is so exciting! Really interesting video, what do you think you did differently this year to get success with spaghetti squash than in previous years? I’m sure the cooler weather really helped. Squash can be hard in parts of the south where it rains a lot. Most years I would plant heirloom squash varieties in the ground or in raised beds like most everything else. I would get a few fruits, but lose most of my squash plants to flooding or pickleworm/melonworm (a moth/caterpillar pest) or powdery mildew before they produced more than a few fruits. This year I tried a different approach, and got hybrid squash seed so it would grow faster and planted them on very tall well-draining hills/mounds to avoid flooding, and fertilized really heavily with chilean sodium nitrate from Hoss. The weather has been cooler than most years and much, much drier than normal, there’s a bit of powdery already, but I’m pruning it off, so I might actually get a serious squash crop this year for the first time! Keep up the great videos, happy growing

  • That is so cool. I’ve been having problems trying to get the Cherokee Tan pumpkins to sprout. Finally, after 25 seeds I have 1 sprouting. I would love to be able to get at least 1 pumpkin let alone 50 squash. I do have several crookneck squash coming along but haven’t tried the spaghetti squash. I may wait until next year for that. But love the looks of those squash Danny. I’m looking forward to the taste testing. Vicky.

  • Awesome harvest. I am anxiously waiting to see what you all think about the taste of them. I have only ever eatin the long Spaghetti Squash. God Bless You Both.

  • Thank you so much for your amazing content! I can’t wait for your next Ignite course!!! Is there a way I can purchase the printables, without taking the course? I’m trying to figure out this whole meal prepping thing now lol Sorry I’m impatient!:)

  • I bought spaghetti squash for the first time, and im so excited to make it! Only problem is I have no idea what I should do with it… Would it be good with some salmon? If anyone could give me some recipe recommendations that would be great!:D

  • Do you have a link to the seed company? I do not understand the name….Hull Seed, Hall Seed or as a comment states Hoss Seed? Not clear. Thanks for the help.

  • Danny I agree with you about Hoss seeds and I AM from northern Indiana. I compared their seeds for the beans I like to grow with 3 other company’s and Hoss seeds just look healthier from the start. Those guys are doing it right. Just got my seeds in the mail today for the fall harvest. 3rd mailing this year.

  • I used to boil mine, liked them but thy were too mushy, then I tried baking them as you explained in your answer vid and I loved it… the thing is that it takes way too long, I’m going to try the microwave next…

  • Little tipcut it in half across the middle not lengthwise. You’ll get longer strands of squash that way. It’s so good with Alfredo sauce! We love spaghetti squash and hope you do as well!

  • Danny and Wanda, please join us in #shedwars I would love to see you join #teamwillitgrow and show that not all of our Southern Gardeners will join #teamwoodcutter and his crazy plan of touching off the old feelings of war between brothers. Please join in with us on #teamwillitgrow and help us even up the teams!
    Whichever team you pick, we would be honored to have you in #shedwars!
    Thank you for your considerations.

  • You can control that powdery mildew with hydrogen peroxide 3%. Mix 1/2 cup peroxide to one gallon water. It works wonders. Great harvest.

  • Dam son Looky there. Those are making me hungry just seeing all that laying there. I been watchin Hoss for a bit now do like their stuff and things…Y’sll are killin it Keep up the great work Much Love My Brethren! Many Fish One Love! @’Ur6

  • What a beautiful spaghetti squash, Alyssia. When I get bored, I listen to some Tchaikovsky and Mozart to relax me. What do you love about using pumpkin?

  • oooo, great video. thumbs up! Ive thrown my microwave away after reading many reports about microwaves randomley destroying complex nutrient bonds, and i need lots of those! haha

  • Hoss was out of seeds so I tried another brand. Out of a dozen seeds a got one to sprout. That one started to grow and then just died. All my other squash has produced like crazy. Will have to order from Hoss earlier next time. I eat spaghetti squash a lot to help with my blood sugar levels. A little butter, salt, black pepper and some parmigiana cheese sprinkled on top a you have yourself a meal.

  • I do not have a green thumb but I will try a garden this yr in the northeast. Wow that is awesome!!! Will learn from your vids. My son did 3 small raised beds for me. We will be planting very soon… In pots we have garlic growing.and herbs. Got alot to learn!!! ❤ ❤ Thanks Danny..So beautiful..WOW!!!

  • I love your channel and I love it even more because you look like a pastor friend that we have in Mexico he’s a real super nice man like you my question is my potato plants on the bottom of the plant have regular leaves but now they’re getting taller they’re about 16 inches tall and their leaves have curled why I know this is not about your spaghetti squash I’m sorry about that but I do love spaghetti squash two years ago I planted spaghetti squash the big ones and I had about 30 my whole front yard was full of spaghetti squash small yard anyways God bless you be safe and have a good day

  • Love me some spaghetti squash! I will roast them with olive oil salt and pepper then use the fork to pull them out of the shells and then dress them with chopped tomato, garlic and basil and parmesan. So good so simple. Yum!

  • Does Spaghetti Squash taste as ‘Claggy’ as it looks or is the texture quite dry & firm? We don’t have them in England. We get Courgette (Zucchini) sometimes Yellow ones Butternut Squash and Marrow which is a giant Courgette. Pretty tasteless and Watery. We never see the amazing varieties you have over there.

  • I’m going to get one of these tonight for dinner… I have a teenage daughter who is riding the fine line between being diabetic and being type 2 diabetic, I think this would be a great way for her to get her veggies, satisfy her pasta craving without it raising her sugar levals too badly! thanks for this tutorial!!!

  • Danny the very first time I ever had spaghetti squash was 2 years ago when my youngest daughter was enrolled in my former church’s after school program. They would give all the parents fresh veggies; brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes etc. My daughter was given 3 large spaghetti squash; I’d never made nor had them before. I served it with fried pork chops and steamed rice and it was delicious! They stayed in my fridge for a good long while before I cooked them too so they do store well. Once I get my dream land I will be growing them. That’s wonderful you and Mrs. Wanda will have such an abundance of these beauties. Please let us know how they turn out:-)

  • I love spaghetti squash and am growing some for the first time but am concerned as I have no way to store them since we cannot have a root cellar. Any suggestions?

  • WOW!!! ALL those gorgeous squash from only 5 seeds? AMAZING! SO sorry about that mildew….:( YAY for Hoss tool seeds!!!! SO glad they work so well at your place…. Can’t wait to see how the squash look inside and how they taste.

  • God is surely blessing you! How wonderful! Last year these squashes were selling for $6-$10 each depending on size. Am watching ours closely to determine when to harvest. I’m the only one that likes them and have the larger variety. Have so many may need to preserve some. Any suggestions or videos on preserving?

  • wow you made it sound so easy, I purchased some and tried to fry it with onions after cleaning the pits or seeds out, well it was still tough on the skin so now that I see how it suppose to look and cook I thank you.

  • I grew this variety for several years as my mother in law and mother loved them for the size. And they were this prolific then too. Even with the deer issue I get here I ended up with 10 to 15 per plant.
    I have been able to get the small wonder seed in years so I might order some next year.
    I thought they tasted like the bigger ones and the small size was perfect for one person or as a side dish for 2 people. If you have guest you can always cook more.

  • I planted these as well from Hoss seeds for the first tie this season. Looking forward to seeing what mine are going to do! Y’all have been blessed!

  • How many servings does one squash make, roughly? I like the idea of replacing carb heavy pasta with nutrient filled vegetable, but those things are sadly not cheap at least where I live.

  • Wow, I’m convinced.
    I’ve got to get some of those seeds! I have no problem with growing them but I like the smaller size of these.

  • Hi folks. Those squash will help y’all have lots of food for a long time. The message you have been bringing for years is exactly what we need for a new effort. #shedwars It is a new global effort to teach folks how to grow food wherever they are to help overcome the food shortages you have warned people about for many years.
    With your audience and knowledge you would be powerful allies in this new global message.

  • I have a few volunteer plants that came from my compost. I planted three of them and they’ve taken over one of my raised beds. I have no clue what they are but my best guess is spaghetti squash. Can you do another video when your squash is ready to pick? This is my first time growing this. Thanks so much!

  • We had great results with our spaghetti squash and butternut squash we planted last year. We had them climb up a trellis and the squash just hung and didnt pull the plant off the fence at all. Might try that next time on one of your cattle panel fences.

  • I’m growing this variety too. It’s my first time with spaghetti squash. Here in NC, they are just starting to set fruit…a lot of fruit! I’m looking forward to seeing how y’all use, store, process, put up your spaghetti squash. Thanks for the great informative videos.

  • I tried this, it worked great! I fixed a 2.14 lb squash this way, then shredded it and sauteed in garlic butter with some salt, pepper, ground red chipotle powder, a little grated cheese, and some diced and roasted chicken I had lying around. Very quick and very good.

  • Really appreciate your video. Your voice & inflection make it very easy to listen to your instructions, and the camera angle changes make it seem not so “blah” and “vlog-like”. And the info you give is very helpful! The other several videos I’ve watched said to microwave it for 4-5 minutes. Period. And I’ve been wondering what the heck I’M doing wrong!! 10 mins, and I’m ALMOST there… (our store apparently only carries very large sizes..??).
    I’m really looking forward to this big ol’ sucker to come out of the microwave so I can scrape it up & dress it!! I haven’t had a (properly cooked!) spaghetti squash in YEARS!!!!!:-D
    Thank you!!!

  • starting the video with information on the nutritional density of spaghetti squash but then you microwave it…? yeah, nuke it, good idea

  • I agree with your sentiment on the Hoss Seeds! I sourced seeds from various companies this year and the plants from the Hoss Seeds are far healthier and stronger than the other squash seeds I planted.

  • That’s awesome, a bumper crop of spaghetti squash! That’s a wonderful blessing! Fresh zucchini noodles are a perfect spaghetti substitute! Just make sure u squeeze the liquid out before you add your sauce. When u saute the zucchini noodles, lot’s of liquid will come out.

  • You are so gorgeous!! and this looks so so yummy…I just subscribed i’m new to youtube so would you mind checking out my channel and my first makeup tutorial? x

  • I have been staring at a spaghetti squash on my counter for 2 weeks dreading the whole “will I lose a finger?” thoughts in prepping it. I had no idea you could nuke them I will do it! Thank you!

  • Impressive! I too ordered seeds from Hoss tools and the results have surpassed the other heirloom seeds I had purchased in the past from a competitor. In two weeks my Contender bush beans I had planted were over a foot tall. Great friendly people there too. Blessing’s, Linda

  • I am planning my winter garden and greenhouse. Never had a greenhouse do you have any tips for growing tomatoes inside? What about pollination and what type of tomato plant should I get. Who do you get your seeds from. I am zone 7 Alabama.

  • There is a candied spaghetti squash in Mexico called chilacayote. Ah, don’t wince. Strands are still showy, and kind of crispy, but is is candied sort of preserved like. so it is high in sugar. Ah, very tasty, still

  • I have never grown those! I am curious to see how they taste and how long they will store. I love squash and I love Hoss Tools! Super great customer service, also!

  • YES! Finally someone who gets microwave spaghetti squash instead of risking cutting off your hand to cut and bake in the oven!! What a waste of time! 20-25 minutes in the micro and TA-DA! Perfectly cooked S-Squash! Don’t forget to pierce with long meat fork tines or a metal BBQ skewer to vent, or you’ll have a mess to clean up in your micro!

  • My containers that I am planting squash in is coming today. Will get soil next week. I’m so excited to grow these. Do you know how many days it took them?

  • I hope I can get some of those. Spaghetti squash is my number one squash goal because I cannot eat pasta. I have found recently though that the garafallo organic pasta from Costco doesn’t make me sick like other pastas do. Thank you for sharing. I’m growing regular spaghetti squash but I wanna try these too

  • i have a 4 year old who refuses to eat veggies. i made this tonight instead of spaghetti noodles and she had a full bowl! such a great mommy moment

  • Can’t you just half it scrape the seeds and place butter salt and pepper and nuke it that way? That way the seasonings have a chance to flavor the veggie! What’cha think about them apples? My mommy said I would make someone a wonderful wife! Been cooking since 1955! Certified “65” Taa-Daa! Thats a new idea, nuke them with apples!

  • never use a microwave, ah what’s wrong with people. if you use a microwave you might as well just go to McDonalds. There is no point in eating healthy, if your using a microwave.

  • Just popped in to say I ordered about $100 of seeds from Hoss and they came in less than 5 days! I used “deepsouth” promo code and got a pack of free Tachi tomato seeds too. Cant wait to get my Fall garden on! ������������������

  • Why would you use a microwave and kill all the NUTRITIONAL ENZYMES??? All was good until you said microwave. With all the food we eat today which doesn’t contain any nutrition at least when we home cook we want all the benefits of the foods we prepare. Well, enjoy and by all means I didn’t mean to be mean, I just don’t use microwaves because my family and I need every ounce of nutrition we can get from real alkaline organic foods. Peace and Love to you.

  • A while back I did battle with my first spaghetti squash, the squash won. Thank you for the tip of microwaving it, love the recipes!

  • Perfect day, harvesting spaghetti squash with your love ❤️ Great haul!!
    Family would do better just spending time together enjoying the simple things in life.

  • I ordered these seeds from your last video about them! I’m going to be planting in the fall! I’m so excited! Hope I’m even half as successful as your harvest!

  • Hey just a little tip. After you have microwaved your spaghetti squash, cut the ends off but do not cut it in half. Instead, keep cutting into rings. Make sure your squash has cooled down enough to handle. Once you have created the rings; scoop out the seeds and gently remove the skin around each ring. Then with your fingers or a fork begin to tease out the spaghetti strands. You will have nice long spaghetti noodles this way. I learned this on this website and it works great! http://food-hacks.wonderhowto.com/how-to/trick-makes-spaghetti-squash-noodles-more-like-actual-pasta-0160744/

  • How EXCITING! I’ve never had spaghetti squash and wonder how they taste. Do you ‘have’ to add sauce and cheese?? Can’t they be eaten more close to coming from the ground without the additions?? Maybe just butter?: )

  • The Deep South Homestead has the most incredible garden in the United States right now. Gratz! Danny and Wanda.

    The Infinite Mind

    Shuster and Siegel gave us a fable about a champion of life,
    sent by his parents from a doomed world to fight on our side.  Today’s fables become tomorrow’s myths,
    legends and beliefs.

    The Infinite Mind is the Mind of God, Yahweh or Jor-el.  The mind of a man is finite.  As my God is Infinite, so is His universe.  To believe the universe is finite requires believing
    there is nothing beyond what mankind can observe.  The universe is composed of an infinite
    number of local Hubble events or ‘Big Bangs’. 
    We just aren’t able to see the others: as yet.  Looking at the night sky with a radio
    telescope makes it seem as though the heavens are indeed a solid blanket of
    glory.  The transmission of light is not
    an example of perpetual motion.  I’ve made
    my case for an infinite universe.

    To study the nature of mind first requires examining
    thought.  What is a thought?  Science currently says it is an
    electro-chemical impulse in your organic brain; I say it is a force created by
    that impulse.  “The mind is a pattern of
    forces supported by the energy of your brain. 
    The mind and the soul are one and the same.”  Now you understand the nature of your mind,
    now you understand the nature of your soul.

    What is the nature of The Infinite Mind of God?  As we are of the same image, so too is His Brain
    composed, not of cells but of an infinite number of sentient, semi-sentient and
    unaware life forms.  Each part or finite
    being adds his, or her, or its share to the Unity which is God.  God is Life and Life is God: just as the Buddhists
    say.  I say, “Hello, fellow parts, hello
    brothers and sisters.  You are not God,
    you are a small part of God.”

    How can this be?  How
    can thoughts unite infinity when the limitation of the transmission of energy
    is the speed of light?  Thought is not
    energy: it is force.  Place a pencil or
    other object on a table and push one end. 
    Don’t meditate on how fast you push it but on how fast the other end
    reacts to your push.  Physics is already
    progressing towards the idea that there is no such thing as ‘empty’ space.  Isn’t that what the words, ‘fabric of space’
    mean? 

           “In the proper medium of transmission, force may be transmitted instantaneously.”  
    If you accept thought as a force and the mind as a pattern
    of forces, then the Unity of the Infinite Mind of God is not just a possibility
    but approaches a probability.  Your
    merest thought reaches out to infinity. 
    Who is to hear it if not God? 
    “God Bless us, everyone”, said Tiny Tim

    I believe that there is no such thing as magic, only
    unexplained events.  I believe it is more
    efficient for God to change our perceptions than to change reality.  I believe God has all power there is, not all
    power we imagine.  I believe God has all
    knowledge there is, not all knowledge we have yet to create. I believe that is
    our glory; we create knowledge.  I
    believe God can maintain the patterns of our minds after death.  I believe it is better to love than to hate
    but hate strengthens the back when you are beaten to your knees.

    God orders us to do nothing except be happy, as he knows we
    will not obey any other order.  I believe
    happiness requires prayer, the control of desire, good diet, good health and
    regular moderate exercise.                                         

    If this prayer finds favor with you please copy it and pass
    it out to friends and strangers.  I make
    no claims as to whether or not this is gospel; I can only testify that I
    believe.  Amen

    Thomas Lee Worley                                               Mother’s Day, May 10, 2020.  Rev. May 11

    Only a physicist who believes could have written this prayer. Two allowed observations which I did not include are as follows:

    Energy consists of particles which are too small to be fully affected by gravitons/Higgs Boson particles.

    Natural magnetism requires the postulation of another particle as gravitons affect all
    matter not just magnetite. In a bar magnet the magneton flows naturally through
    the north end to the south, as the south exiting magnetons then have lesser
    energy, due to resistance any magnetons unable to squeeze through the capacity
    of the bar magnet are attracted to the south pole of the magnet, thus producing
    the characteristic pattern shown with iron fillings. The pattern of flow of
    these ‘excess’ magnetons may in fact be in a spiral around and down the length
    of the magnet to the south pole as we are given only a two dimensional view of
    their flow. Thus we see that magnetism is a push produced by the energized
    magnetons induced to flow towards the crystalline structure of the bar magnet,
    taking along any ferrous materials in the way as the south pole ejects
    magnetons and pushes away any ferrous materials in the way.  I do not believe in the ‘attractive force’.  Except beauty of course.

  • I have to stop and talk when I hear something I have to comment on because I will forget it by the end and you said two things now I have to remember what they are when was I love hearing the Blue Jays that go by singing I hear them in the background and it Thrills me one of my favorite Birds I know there I mean bird but blue jay and the Cardinal have always been my favorite Birds everyday verbs and I don’t see them or hear them anymore because I live in Mexico and I really enjoyed that and the other thing was I’ve never tried spaghetti squash because I went to buy when Monday at the grocery store and I said no way am I paying that much for squash and so I never have tried one so I’m happy that you had such a great crop I’ve only heard good things about spaghetti squash so congratulations

  • in fact the microwave killing food nutrients is a myth. People think you are iradiating food. http://mobile.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/nutrition_news_information/the_13_biggest_nutrition_and_food_myths_busted?page=9

  • Awesome! Maybe ill check out that seed company. I love spaghetti squash. So happy for your harvest despite your mildew setback �� thanks for sharing.

  • Amazing yield for only 5 plants. I will be checking out this company today, I have seen too many good results from you not too. Thank you for sharing.

  • Between Saturday and Sunday I built 3 more raised beds. I have 2 more to build and I can fill with my own dirt mix and start planting. I can’t wait. My poor old body is taking a beating. But it will be so worth it in the end. Now if I can figure out how to get some cattle panels home to make some trellis then I would be so so happy. TSC doesn’t deliver…they use a service and the service wants to charge 2 grand to deliver 10 panels…no way. I will figure it out since I just have an SUV. Might rent a uhaul…lol. Love the spaghetti squash!!!

  • you seem very nice and u explained everything so well! thumbs up for this im gonna subscribe this is the first time ive subscribed to someone when i have only watched on of there vids:))

  • When we last grew spaghetti squash, we grew it to run up along a fence and we found they stayed clean hanging there and they were a lot bigger than we have ever had before!

  • I followed your instructions and it is delicious! Love the fact that it is only 40 calories per cup. I’ve never eaten  or prepared spaghetti squash but I had to try because of the health benefits.

  • Hi Danny. Your hard work and determination has motivated myself and many other to have prepper and homestead channels. I hope you can salvage as much food as possible.

  • Nice job! I really enjoy your channel. Watching from Wickenburg Arizona and hoping I can start a garden one day for the first time on my 12 acres of river bottom property! For now am living vicariously through you guys❤️ Learning a lot! God Bless you real good��

  • To make this method a bit safer place the squash onto a damp cloth covered cutting board to help prevent slipping. I also use an ice pick or an awl (a leather crafting tool) and punch small holes through the tough skin), I’ve found both of these at second hand stores and flea markets.

  • thank you so much for this video. i tried it and im telling you it was DELISH. thank you so much and i know im gonna make this more than once
