Garden Update: Prison Break Edition

Lesson learned: squash plants need their own VegTrug. I got greedy and planted two yellow squash plants and two zucchini in the VegTrug and the yellow squash plants especially are taking over. I never really payed attention to how squash plants grew before and obviously wasn’t expecting these huge leaves and thorny stems. I had to cut away some of the leaves today in order for the pepper plant to get more light. The squash leaves are living up to their name and squashing the other plants around them too like the rosemary and arugula.

I already see at least one squash developing. And there are many blossoms.

The cherry tomato plant has a few green tomatoes on it and there are buds on all of the other plants.

I’m happy to report that the pumpkin plant has bounced back. The initial blooms died off, but there are several others either in bloom now or budding.

  1. LOL. Squash plants really are space hogs. I’ve put mine in their own small patch this year with their only neighbors some lettuce that benefit from the shade. Provided they succeed they are at least obligingly productive. Everything looks great!
