OOOOOOO! New layout! How do you like it?
Here are the plans for Farmer MacGregor’s simple yet functional support for the Lemon Squash to climb up. That’s the plan. The plants will climb up and the squash will dangle down through the wire support. The plants will provide enough shade on the underside of the support for me to try to grow beets during the summer. 04/28/10 squash support is installed. Squash are planted.
06/10/10 Lemon Squash in the background climbing the MacGregor support. Can you see the Breakfast Radishes growing beneath the squash? They’re supposed to ward off evil spirits and pesky pests. So far so good. Malali Watermelon are growing in the foreground.
Note of interest to me: I have followed Abby Sunderland’s blog on her journey to sail solo around the world from the beginning. Today’s news of losing contact with her in the Indian Ocean has me thinking of her and her safety. This sixteen year old young lady is truly an inspiration. Please keep her in your thoughts.
