You Can Take the Boy Out of the Pumpkin Patch

Squash bug eggs
but still he may be searching for squash bug eggs on vacation. We visited the Fort Montgomery Museum while at Bear Mountain and checked out the revolutionary war garden that was replicated onsite. The theory is that soldiers in the revolutionary war supplimented their food supplies with gardens built onsite at forts. The gardener was keen to show us what he was growing (some familiars like the three sisters, corn, beans and squash) and even gave us instructions on how to make our own yarrow tincture. So we squashed bug eggs together and talked gardening. For news on a local Revolutionary War Garden in Brooklyn, go here.
