Squash growth (5).jpeg

The squash plants are putting out vines and leaves at such a frantic pace these days, competing for ever-more-limited space, it’s hard to recall how three months ago my main concerns were about whether they’d sprout at all. Now I’m afraid they’ll start strangling each other. Things just looked so empty back when I was planting. Noted for next year: sow squash seeds farther apart.
