I didn't mention however that we're gonna have a helluva squash harvest this year. From the remains of a squash or two I tossed in the compost pile some time last winter. The biggest, healthiest plant in the garden wasn't even planted by us.
Actually, the two biggest plants in the garden. It appears there are two varieties of squash now competing for space in the compost bin.
I might have forgotten to turn the pile for a
month few months.
I'm envisioned a whole new series of gardening books. Maybe even a TV show.
"Compost Gardening in 3 easy steps."
Toss, Wait, Enjoy.
What surprises are turning up in your gardens this summer?
