That said we did also barter a saw and a toolbox from our neighbours for eggs over the last year. I forgot about them when I was starting this thread. I like that, too. I love it when money doesn't have to change hands.
Nice deal. I was going to say about 1:1 for butternut if it was Zucchini then 3:1 ... At least in our area.
