We decided not to plow or till. He would only mow the cover crop and any grass that was there. Then he started making trips to the dump to get trailer-full after trailer-full of this wonderful stuff! I believe her got at lest 6-7 loads and started spreading.
After planting my seedlings which I had started earlier, we put them in the ground and gave them some water. Nothing much else.
Here is what it looks like today.
We've actually had a hot, dry summer so far, with some rain last week.
Lots and lots of blossoms on the squash.
Patty-pan squash can be eaten as summer squash, or later left on the plant to get big for use as winter squash.
|Notice the nice, soft, CLEAN, squishy bed that squash lays on!|
I have yet so see any squash bugs. That doesn't mean I won't.
My husband has weeded twice. Each time it took no more that 10 minutes. Really! Did I mention we haven't watered?
See the video here.
The tomato plants look very good, although they have some sort of a leaf curl. It doesn't seem to have much affect on them, although they are not as pretty. There is just a tiny bit of blossom end rot on the tomato I picked this morning. The rest of them look great!
We haven't put any green beans in the ground yet. Maybe there will be time for a fall crop. We got it all in very, very late.
I hope you will see the video. It takes over an hour to view it all, but you will be pretty amazed!
