Food, food culture, food as culture and the cultures that grow our food

Note to self: search for suitable acronyms

May 6, 2006

CCLPSGGCWPMC or backwards, CMPWCGGSPLCC. In the last row (covered in hay): courgette (gold rush), cukes, luffah, pumpkin, spaghetti squash, gourds, galia melon, cantaloup, watermelon, poblano pepper, marconi pepper, corn. At this stage in development, I’m having trouble telling the gourdy, cukey, melony plants apart and even had to label them. I prefer to keep notes in a muddy garden notebook to labeling a plant, the idea being that the dangling cucumber should tell me the plant is a cucumber. But in the meantime, the plants are babies, and like all babies, they sort of look alike.

On the ‘right bank’: amaranth, buckwhat, alfalfa. ABA.

In the ‘bean rows’: sunflowers, dill, soy, soy, adzuki, chickpeas, red night kidney. No acronym necessary since the plants are so different looking.


Grow, You thangs!
