Celebrate National Farmer’s Day on October 12

National Farmer’s Day is coming up on Thursday, October 12. It is a day to pay tribute to all the farmers throughout American history — which is a lot of farmers—as farming is one of the oldest jobs around!

 

The profession of farming began around 12,000 years ago with the domestication of livestock  as hunter/gatherers settled down to plan their own food. Out of agriculture, cities and civilizations grew, and because crops and animals could be farmed to meet demand, the global...

Patty pan squash can be treated like any other summer squash— c...
