This summer, I am "community gardening" with my neighbor down the road, Rita. Her husband, Joe, passed away three years ago. They had a huge garden in their backyard - it was his summer's passion. He had cross bred two types of squash to create his own variety that he planted every year from seed from the previous year's harvest. This summer, we planted seed from the squash that was from his last gardening year. Lo and behold - we have plants! Yesterday I counted six plants - I'm hoping I have a lot of friends who love squash!
