The Roma volunteers that I planted in last years “earth box” are doing “ok”. Just now a month old and have baby maters. Those in the main garden were planted mid April and are huge! Most are chest high on me & I’m 5’9! I’ll have to get photos as its our best year ever growing them Those I planted in the Up side down pots are doing well also. Although I’ve pruned them way back the stems are a bit spindly compared to the others. The one in the pot below (redneck drip system) is growing like gang busters. It’s weight has pulled out the stakes and fallen over. I stuck an old laundry basket under to help prop it up. Serves a duel purpose as it catches rain water in the bottom and is working as a hot house. The weight of the stems and blooms are going to break the plant unless I find alternative way to support it..maybe some plywood scraps?
And the squash in my Red Neck Earth box.
Its growing like crazy I’ve had hundreds of blooms…no squash. I was taking the watched pot never boils mentality and leaving it alone to do its thing. Well, its not doing its thing so I checked and all I see are female blooms. The squash in the main garden have the same issue only they have all male blooms. I’m sure going to feel like a perv pollinating these!
And, out of control bushes and volunteer shrubs that need cleared.
Its all fun and games till it comes to weeding!
