This one cucumber plant has already given us two gorgeous cukes and it has a hundred flowers!  Good thing since my 4 year old eats a whole one with hummus for a snack!


Shrub sized basil! How much pesto can one family eat, really? I’m thinking I will freeze some to make space for the kale and tomato neighbors. The flowers are drawing the bees which have helped the squash so this basil is a keeper.


One beautiful long squash ready for soup! I have let these get much bigger but this one is getting picked today. The flavor is always mild but a little better if smaller.
Happy Wednesday everyone!

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.
