Landrace: locally-adapted diversity

Sorellina: I also grow small squash... And rotten squash, and deformed squash, and nasty tasting squash, and ugly squash, and blemished squash, and squash with animal bites, and worm food squash, and etc.... I promise not to laugh at others squash growing adventures unless it's along the lines of "Ha! I grow squash just like that!". I feel bad sometimes about the squash that I take to the farmer's market, because the best of the best never make it to the farmer's market, they get saved for seed. The seconds go to market. They are still glorious squash if I've screened them properly before market. Sometimes in the rush to get things picked I put a price tag on a rotten squash and set it on the table at market... Good thing for a mostly laid back market so that I can screen them one more time before sending them on to their new home.

The worst booboo ever was when I harvested mint, and bundled up nightshade greens as part of the package. I don't know if I sold any like that, but I picked them that way.
