Before and After I took out my Vengeance on the Squash

by - July 25, 2011

Despite my best efforts to salvage the squash plants from vine borers, the vine borers got the last laugh. Deciding to not dwell on the loss and watch the plants slowly wither away, I pulled them out so I could go ahead and rework the garden paths.

The Man-child and I have been busy scattering seeds in these open spaces, and just this morning I noticed tiny sprouts. I hope they are herbs and lettuces and not weeds. We have replanted carrots, speckled lettuce, black seeded Simpson, dill, cilantro, kale, radishes, marigolds, pumpkins, and squash.

Looking at these pictures I see so much unused space! Because this is the first year of this garden, the soil still needs to be built up before we are able to use it more efficiently.These aren't exactly raised beds, but I want to mound them up more before next spring. For this fall, we will make do with what is out there.
