I have used the remains after steaming apples juice to make a tasty apple butter that can be used for baking or as a bread spread. See the recipe here.
This is a good way to use squash. The cake is very tasty and lasts for several days in room temperature.

The long flower border is a combination of small trees, shrubs and perennials. For variation a few annuals are placed here and there every year.
