Garden UpdatesPosted: June 24, 2010
This is the major story of our garden plot so far: squash plants are bullies. From just a couple of seends, our squash plants now have leaves the size of dinner plates and a couple of vines as big around as hotdogs. They’re taking over, and potentially keeping our beets, carrots, and tatsoi from getting the light, water, and nutrients they need. When somebody tells you that squash plants need a lot of room, believe them.
We’ve also just set up our trellis, which we hope will allow our tomatoes and one of our squash plants to grow upward. More pictures of that to come.
