More lessons, con’t from this post

Tomato cages. Just suck it up and buy them. Stakes do no good when they have 6 “main” stalks coming up from the ground! It’s like trying to stop a monkey from flinging poo. Or trying to contain a 2 year old. Not gonna happen.

Zucchini and squash need a lot more room then the 2′ circle this boneheaded blog author gave them. 4′ all around. Or more.

Weed control. Don’t think because you start out good that you can slack off. Or your garden will look like this after a futile 2 hour weeding session:

That really is almost ALL WEEDS – the taters and corn are all harvested, so all the green you see, except the far right tomatoes and the far left squash, is weeds. :dizzy And that really is after I spent 2 hours taming some of the worst!

    weeds are the enemy. next year mulch with newspaper ten feet thick. (not really ten feet, but a good layer) that keeps them at bay, somewhat.

    i really should follow my own advice.

    Oh, dear…I know it’s not polite to laugh at ones weeds, especially when we don’t even know each other! It’s just that it made me feel so much better about the powdery mildew on my summer squash. I’m glad I stumbled onto your blog tonight.
