The squash are doing remarkably well. All nine plants are full like this one. Can't wait to cook up a mess with some bacon and green onion. I didn't get much done in this garden this weekend. Planted collard and watermelon plants to fill in areas that didn't come up. I know the collards are a cold weather plant but they had them for sale and I thought what the heck. Still need to get some more seeds in - butterbeans - before its completely too late.
Plumbing issues has caused me to dig up the flowers from the bed at the back of the house. I did not realize that when I planted my flowers there that one side of the bed is devoted to plumbing. I do not have city sewage so I have a septic tank and what is called a grease trap. Anyway problems have come up and the guys needed to get where my flowers were. So they were moved to this location. This is near the vegatable garden and is away from the house. Anyway this spot needed little work since the grass was already dead in most of the area. This spot will allow me to add to the garden very easily.
