Richard G. Petty, MD

Farmer P.

Well today your humble reporter is like a dog with two tails.

He has never tried growing anything other than roses and herbs, but She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted vegetables. So I was dispatched to create a vegetable garden. Being in the American colonies, we decided to use the old Native American method, planting corn, squash and beans in the same hole in the ground, so that the corn grows, providing a climbing structure for the beans, and the two together provide shade for the squash. Being originally of an English persuasion, I hadn’t seen squash, except as an occasional import in exotic stores, so I didn’t know what to expect.

Well here is my first crop.

Thank you to Morgan Wenner for providing her hand!

I am now in the market for squash recipes: I think that we’re going to be living on them for a while….
