A Winter Squash is Taking Over My Life
My garden update now really only includes my astonishment over my triamble squash. It’s kind of ridiculous.
Ok, that’s actually a kind of lie, because I just looked at my collection of garden photos and realized I hadn’t shown you some other stuff yet. We’ll do that first. Don’t worry, plenty of stupid photos of winter squashes to come.
Yellow cherry tomatoes thinking about getting ripe. Also grew these from a seed. It really does boggle my mind. (I sound like such a noob gardener, talking with such wonder, but there is so much wonder to behold when you garden!)
This is the only leek that has grown to anything. The other 8 or so got their sunlight blocked too much from the cauliflower and broccoli, and now the winter squash. Oh well, at least I learned something about how to lay out my plants for next year!
And now for the stupidness.
Crazy. I did some reading and found out that these guys can get up to twenty pounds. And that they need lots of room for growing. If we’re still in this house next year, I will not be growing squash of any sort. While awesome, it is a little stressful to try to keep it in bounds of the garden area. Anyway, here are a few more that are growing.
