Audrey from Seacoast Eat Local just shared her secret Cousa (or Kousa) recipe. So promise not to tell anyone, alright? Cousa is a Lebanese zucchini that is traditionally stuffed with seasoned meat and rice, but she shows an easy way of enjoying the same great flavors. You can use the same preparation guideline for any summer squash or zucchini, but it's best with the real-deal light green Cousa variety. Try it!

The Meadow's Mirth Slideshow

There are plenty more photos of us on flickr. Some of them are from us, but most of the really good ones were taken by Jennifer Dickert. She's been taking great pictures of us and other vendors at the Portsmouth Farmers' Market.

crazy riot

I have a love - hate relationship with flower farming. It can be a lot of work, but it's times like this that remind me why I love it. Here are some flowers from back in June. The photo was taken by a friend as I was arranging bouquets Friday night before market.

Trouble in Paradise

CAUTION: the following scenes contain violence and graphic bug sex that may be offensive to some viewers. What can I say? This is organic farming at it's best, folks. Sometimes, it just plain "sucks."Cue the violins!

He was out for a walk alone, when suddenly...

disaster struck!

They thought they found the perfect spot to profess their love, but tragedy loomed from above the protective canopy of the squash forest.

Who is this enemy of cucumber beetles, squash bugs and Colorado potato beetles everywhere?

One man,

12 volts,

a bungee cord,

And a machine so terrifying they call it

Tonight at ten.
