Oh boy….this is our first year of gardening and it sure has been a learning experience. I know we planted the squash plants too close together and probably should have planted less of them. I went out last night to check the garden and the squash was not looking well at all. Upon closer inspection I noticed that almost a lot of the roots were exposed–yikes!!
We decided that the best course of action would be to cut off all the dead leaves and add LOTS more dirt. So tonight we performed some gardening surgery, but I’m not sure the plants will make it. The zucchini plants are producing well (yeah, I know, suprise, suprise….I think zucchini always does well—lol).
Anywho, here’s some pics of the garden…what do you think. Will they make it???
This is after we added lots of dirt. The leaves look funny–almost turning a white color.

Keeping my fingers crossed that they will rebound. There are quite a few buds on the plants. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Yea!!! It looks like we will definitely have tomatoes, squash and beans from the garden. The cucumbers and peppers are looking kinda bad….the heavy frost we had at the beginning of the month really took a toll on them. BeansTomatoesMorning dew is so pretty on the plantsSquash (yum!!)
Most everything is planted. Of course, after we had 90% of it done we had frost (gggrrrr….) I think the plants survived though. Hoping for a good harvest. Here’s what we planted (we are trying some in containers this year to see if we have any luck that way) 6 tomato6 pepper (a variety of …Read More
