Well I'm almost a month behind last year's gardening schedule but between the weather, having a lot going on and some issues with my back (herniated disc) I'm just now getting around to getting it in. If the rains will hold off today most everything should go in tomorrow and Sunday. While I'm waiting for things to dry out I thought I would share my latest and greatest (maybe) idea for some of the plants.
Last year I had a problem with some root rot on my squash and my cucumbers sort of grew out and spread all over the ground, making it hard to walk and hard to pick. After seeing this in someone else's garden I thought I would give it a shot. You will need the following:
A 50' long roll of fencing, some wire cutters and some zip ties. I used that to create these...
It was nice to be back outside, getting some physical work done and putting some sweat equity into the garden-even if it wasn't actually playing in the dirt!
I plan on putting them in, planting the seeds around the outsides and then "training" the plants up and around. I'll keep you posted on how they turn out...Happy Good Friday!
