Squash Week!

I hope you enjoyed Squash Week! Gregg and I have decided to make this an annual event, and will have a linky for everyone to link to their favorite squash recipes next year. But for now, here is a wrap up of all of the summer squash and zucchini recipes on the Hallee the Homemaker site to date.

The Garden: Week 8

It’s crazy how, when you’re looking at the new baby plants planted so far apart, you think you should fill in the gaps. But, experience teaches you that’s a really bad idea.

Three Sisters

Three sisters is a Native American gardening technique called “intercropping”. Three plants – corn, squash, and beans – are planted together and work together. The green bean crawls up the corn stalk and uses it as a pole, nourishing the soil at its roots with nitrogen nodules in its roots, and the squash grows along the base of the corn and beans, providing ground cover to retain moisture and prevent weed growth.

The Garden: Week 4

I know I didn’t post a garden post last week. To be honest, the garden frustrated me a little bit last week, and I just had to take a step back from it. We’d had so much rain – record breaking rainfall. Then the temperature dropped. Then it warmed up and we had even more rain.

The Garden: Week 2

This has been an off week for the garden. The highs every day have been about 50 degrees (last week the highs were about 85 degrees), and it has been raining. I think Tuesday night, the low was 43, and some part of my brain worried that it would drop to freezing. Kind of hard for this girl from Florida to take the third week of May.
