Food not lawns update

Last year we prepped part of our backyard for planting by tilling the grass in and planting a cover crop. This year we are actually planting in this area! We planted potatoes (thanks to generosity of farmer friends), butternut squash (saved seed from last year’s crop) and cukes. This weekend we will plant tomatoes in between the cucumbers and trellis those as well. Great to be using this space for producing food instead of mowing it as lawn.
