Ray stumbled across some random squash growing in the pasture.
Only, it wasn’t random. We followed the chicken tractor and purposely spread our custom seed mix in the freshly scratched and fertile soil.
It took awhile, but finally, we’re seeing the results.

Will they make it to harvest? Probably not. But it is gratifying to see that they are trying, reaching and growing despite the cold that will soon arrive.
So determined and so strong
