    I love getting your interviews etc. One thing you should keep in mind. Some of us out here are really learning from scratch. No one ever showed me gardening. So you might want to explain the steps from the beginning for things. I’ve heard the term going to seed, do you have to wait to a certain point before you collect seeds from different veggies.
    Thank you for all you do…

      Thank you so much for your comment Dave, and yes, I will start focusing on more basics.

      and I hope this inspires you that there is more than just great food to be had out of a backyard.

    We just visited Baker Creek last month. It’s a great family field trip–especially during their festivals.

    Baker Creek is my favorite seed company. There are others I order from, but the Gettles occupy a special place in my heart. There catalog is the perfect companion, for a cozy evening spent dreaming of what you will plant next. This company offers seed that is literally unavailable elsewhere.

    This year I decided I was tired of the squash vine borer killing my healthy squash, just as they were about to really produce. So, after doing some research, I found 6 varieties of Curcubita moschata. This species is considered resistant. I planted all six, in my garden and gave 4″ starts to 3 of my friends at work. Well, right now my garden has been overtaken by monster squash plants, and we are talking about the hellish days of July, August and September in Central Texas!

    One of them appears to be the early winner. It is vigorous enough to harvest as Summer squash, and still have plenty of Winter keepers, as well. All were attacked by the borer, but did not fail and continued to produce with no apparent problem. Three of the six are unusual varities I was able to find ONLY from the good folks at Baker Creek. If you place an online order they will send you their truly dreamy catalog. Enjoy!

      Thanks so much for that Leslie. I haven’t had a chance to try out those varieties of squash. I’ve been so lucky not to have the vine borers as a problem (yet), but I sure do hear about it. Is on of the varieties called Tatuma?
