Good Times in Novice Gardening #6

Here is the latest garden news - well, it about doubled in size while we were away. The trellises are not strong enough - blew that. The squash and tomato plants are taking over all the squares. The lettuce peaked then, too, and a few friends enjoyed it for us! So glad it didn't just rot. So now I am trying to figure out how to get the trellises to stay up to hold the strong and heavy plants. We should have secured them better - now we know. Several things I planted by seed never came up. Maybe I didn't water them enough? Ideas?

Some of the produce! I ate squash and zucchini for dinner tonight. Yum.


  1. I am so impressed, it looks like your gardening is flourishing! Yum

  2. Some of my seeds didn't come up either, and I planted twice. I think I might need to fertilize my soil. Your garden looks great. By the way, someone posted about corn meal to get rid of ants...I tried it and I think it works.


A little note from you? Thanks!
