Last week here on the urban homestead was squash week!  Squash for lunch, squash for dinner.  I don’t know about you but with the cooler weather one can never have enough, warm and tasty winter squash!  Definitely getting our daily allowance of vitamin A (beta carotene) from the squash and Vitamin C thanks to the citrus and tropical treats.  Also enjoyed few unseasonable treats for this time of year- melons courtesy of Farmer Sergio.

    Do you realize how beautiful your uncluttered kitchen is? The lighting – the squash – the big country sink – the red cupboards – all just so beautiful and inviting.

    I am thankful for all that you do and that you take the time to share with all of us who read along…

    I continue to be inspired by your family and am looking forward to making more changes in the coming year to increase my family’s independence and sufficiency on our own 0.4 acre in town.

    Does Farmer Sergio grow those fall melons under protection? A greenhouse maybe?

  3. Sergio says:

    The Melons were planted in August.It stays warm enough out here to keep the plants producing till nov-dec.I pulled the last one just yesterday.I’m trying to do some tomatos under cover but my green house may be just to low budget.We’ll see what happens.

  4. CE says:

    If you have access to animal manure that is fresh you could try digging down about 1 1/2 – 2 feet in the green house and layering fresh manure and leaves or straw etc and covering this with soil. It will generate heat in the soil above it and may give you an extra couple of months of tomatoes. You may need to cover with with row cover at night.
    I saw an above ground compost pile in a green house and the pile had PVC pipe coiled inside it. As the pile heated up it warmed the water in the PVC pipes which then ran out of the pile and through pipes underground in the green house. That was their soil/greenhouse heating system.
