My biggest squash yield this year came from my Kabocha squash patch – which is a good thing because I LOVE the sweet orange squash. One of the things that’s fun (and maybe a little annoying) about squash is that the fruit hides among a plethora of leaves. I spend a good part of my summer thinking that the squash crop is a total bust.

Spring Warren lives in a small city in California. The lot her house is on is a little less than a quarter acre in size. She calls it the Quarter Acre Farm not only because of the Geese, ducks, chickens, and rabbits who live there, but because she grows most of her family's food in her yard.
The book Spring has written about becoming a farmer on a small scale, The Quarter Acre Farm, will be coming out with Seal Press this spring. Until then, you can see here what Spring is doing on the Farm at the moment.
