I had great hopes for those squash seedlings I planted in huge pots in the spring. Their huge leaves soon hid the top of the pots and big yellow flowers blossomed into beautiful bouquets. I noticed a fading of the green leaves soon after– maybe the roots were cramped, although there seemed to be enough soil in the pots. I’m wondering if the flowers will eventually produce fruit.
I had a lot of problems with those nasty potato bugs last season. This time I surrounded the plants with tall smiley marigolds. Mid-July and no squishy bugs–yet.
Th garlics looks healthy and happy. I planted them too close together last fall (it was cold that day) and I wasn’t able to work the soil around them. Hope it doesn’t affect the harvest. To be continued..
