I decided to have only a couple hills of squash this year. No fancy varieties, just plain ol’ yellow straightneck squash. No zucchini though, I think the green summer varieties don’t have much taste.
Instead of starting them from seed, I bought a couple of peat pots with squash seedlings growing in them. They’re growing pretty, but I was disappointed that only one had any show of squash. The squash aren’t really as well formed as I’d like. But hey, at least they’re producing.I gave the bare squash vine a good once over and discovered that indeed it had blooms and they were on zucchini squash. 😮
Apparently someone put the wrong plant stake in the peat pot.So, I suppose that it’s meant for me to grow green squash whether I want to or not.
I gave it some thought and I’m now looking forward to having both varieties. Together they’ll make for pretty pictures and tasty stir fries. I’ve a couple zucchini recipes I may make too.
One of my potato plants has grown taller than the bucket. The other potato plant is still at half way point. The plants look very healthy so far. This is easier than planting them in the garden. If this works out, we may make this a part of our gardening every year.
There was some significant thunderstorms moved through our area. The only thing in the garden that was effected was the chard. I suppose it’s because the leaves are so large. They’ll be okay. We figure they’ll stand back up with time.
I hope you all have nice weather and happy thoughts.
