Day One

Well this is a brand new experience for me.  I thought maybe I could start off with one of the most important lessons I’ve learned this year.  Funny how it’s often mistakes that seem to move your gardening skills forward. In 2012 I grew some wonderful Winter Carnival winter squashes. I dutifully collected the seeds and replanted them 2013. Oh la la …big mistake.  The veggie plot looked like a mutant squash zone – the wonders of unmanaged cross pollination. The vast majority went straight into the compost bins.  So in 2014 it’s definitely fresh squash seeds.  I want to try Sweet Dumpling next year and I’ll probably do a butternut as well. Well I’m off out to see to the hens.
