I learned this song from my mother as we drove south from Denali and I hope you’ll enjoy singing it in your garden as much as we do!
And what are we doing?
We’re emasculating, or removing the male flowers, of winter squash as we sing. (When we’re not singing, we’re often talking about how to re-imagine botanical vocabulary, so often binary and violent.) This technique is a classic way to produce F1 Hybrid seed and we additionally are hand-pollinating the open female flowers just to ensure heavy seed set.
may the songs we sing amplify abundance for us all!
