Another Squash Lover
This is my style of gardening – grow a bunch of varieties each year, save the best performers, then try a new round the next year:
I must say, she’s having better luck with her squash/pumpkins than I’ve been having – but our year isn’t over yet. The vine borers here have been incredible. Locals use Sevin dust to control them but I haven’t done so.
Nevertheless, we have had some good successes:
One of my sons with a pumpkin / squash he grew. 19.5lbs! He almost couldn't carry it. There are still 3 more growing on the vine. Not sure of the variety as it was a volunteer from the compost we spread on his garden plot but it looks like a keeper. #gardening #pumpkins #squash #plantbreeding #homegrown
Down by the river fruit are starting to set, even though I’ve lost a few vines. Maybe next year I’ll break out the DDT and we’ll get some serious harvests!
