Squash: Before and After

20120713-120131.jpg

Our master gardener, Jason Matz, harvested 200 pounds of squash today.

This is no small feat; he is working off of a mere 2 acres of land! The magic is in the amendments to the soil, and a lot bit of love for what your doing!

In his honor, Sara made some killer zucchini and squash bread.

This local, sustainable, organic treat was the highlight of our VIP breakfast buffet, and for good reason- it was delicious!!!
