We purchased a half-share in a local organic co-op, and this Saturday Chris brought home our first basket of produce. He took some photos, but they have mysteriously disappeared from the camera (I'll let you guess who takes the most photos around here). So a written rundown will have to suffice: a handful of strawberries, a few radishes, and a heck of a lot of green stuff. I'm looking forward to some more color, but for now our salads are very tasty. I'm sad to think there won't be much squash, though, given who is working that section. Why do I doubt dear spouse's farming abilities (other than the fact that he thinks two hours at the farm in a cool mist is the functional equivalent of toiling in the fields)? An illustration:
Chris: We have squash bugs.
Me: Ewww. That doesn't sound good.
Chris: I know.
Me: So, what do you have to do to get rid of them?
Chris: *silence* ... squash them?
