As loyal blog readers may remember, Blair and I (read:Blair) put in quite the effort this spring to establish a square foot garden. Now that I'm fully on the healthy eating bandwagon and have a nodding acquaintance with the big shiny stainless steel thingee in my kitchen that gets hot if you turn the dials, we were all about growing our own food. Money smart, healthy, and very liberal-chic. Sign us up.
And we've done it! I shared earlier this year our first perfect, beautiful squash. Now I share with you what three months of sporadic watering have gained us:
Yes, that's it. The squash, the carrot, and the rutabaga are what we have to show.
You might think we'd be depressed, but you'd be wrong. We're thrilled. This is three times the amount of food we've ever managed to grow in the past. Smokin' success.
Now that we've got the hang of this farming thing, I can't wait to see what Farmer Blair brings in next year.
p.s. If you need carrots, let us know. I want to share in the bounty of our harvest.
