Our Garden: Late Fall 2016

In early 2016 we started a garden to feed the poor in a small town in Mexico. Here’s what the garden looks like now!

Praise the Lord for a twelve month growing season! Zucchini are still the favorite in the community and we’re making sure they’re always available to harvest. For variety, we’ve still been growing the large globe squashes as well. They’re so versatile.

Depending on how they’re cooked, they can taste like a traditional zucchini. But the texture also works well to cook them like pumpkin and sweeten it for dessert. So from the same large squash, you can take half to use for soup for dinner, and the other half with sugar to make a dish similar to our sweet potato pie (minus the marshmallows).
