I was a little overly zealous with my planting of vege’s and they all fought terribly against each other. Who knew plants were so territorial?!?
The squash literally “squashed” out my Roma tomato plants. When you’re close to the garden, squash really is all you can see and boy does it taste good! Even if it is a bit of a garden bully, I’d plant it again and make sure to give it plenty of space.
It’s clearly obvious I planted the onions and carrots way to close together…fail.
It was a sad summer for the garlic. Here’s the empty grave site where they were suppose to grow. I later learned that they do not like to compete with other plants; they turned out to be very finicky growers for me. Next year they’re going in a container.
I think the butternut squash might just make it. Although the yellow squash is being a bully, butternut is hanging in there! I keep encouraging it to grow big and strong, I think it appreciates the pep talks.
So in conclusion, I’ve learned the true meaning of the name “squash” as in, give ’em plenty of room or they will squash everything else. This blog will be a handy reference of what not to do with your illegal garden. Challenge accepted for next year though! How does your garden grow?
