With Not Much Expectation

Che and I keep a compost heap and daily throw out vegetable scraps. Some of these seed containing scraps normally yield butternut, gem squash and tomato plants.

We let them grow informally with not much expectation of produce. Often they are not strong plants and don’t yield much.

There are other times when we are pleasantly surprised. Like this year, these gem squashes made an appearance and surprised us with their size and number.
