100 Foot Dinner #1

These Potimarron squash were a delight to grow last year. I've saved some seeds so I can plant them again. They were prolific...I must have 20 of them left in storage.

Home grown winter squash (Potimarron) roasted with rosemary and local grown olive oil. It's the best I could come up with tonight. Next, I think I might try pumpkin soup. I'm so glad that I grew winter squash last year and that I still have plenty to last a few weeks until my lettuce, kale and other veggies get bigger. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to grow my own food, and to have the resources to feed my family. I am so sad when I read articles about people who have to go without food, or have to resort to eating dirt like the previous post. I wish I could do more to help feed the worlds hungry.

I feel fortunate to be able to grow things and also that I enjoy doing it. There are a lot of people who could be growing a few of their own things but don't bother.

Here in McMinnville we have a community garden that I'm joining up with where you get to tend one row for yourself and then you have to grow one row for the food bank. I think it's so wonderful to have something like that in any community. Maybe that's something you could organize at some point?
