Squashes, beans, cucumbers and peas
Boy, do I have more weeding to do!
I was surprised that the coffee and ESPECIALLY the compost and compost tea made such a huge difference! Even the strawberry perked right up!
The ‘tea’ was super easy to make — 5 gallon pail, fill 3/4 way with water, add in a few handfuls of compost, stir and let sit for about 2 days. I waited to 2 days, and then using a container, I fed each plant. The next day, they shot up, greened up, and look sooooo much better!
What do you do/use in your garden? I would love to hear what different people use/do.
I’m trying to keep everything I use Organic — No pesticides!
I still have more squashes, cucumbers, cantaloupe and others to plant. I’m just transplanting into the garden a few at a time. I’ve been scouring YouTube for ideas for trellises. I absolutely love the idea of growing butternut and spaghetti squash vertical! The cucumbers, cantaloupe, and strawberry can be trained also. ;0) Here are 2 videos that are inspiring me..(the second one is a bit loud!)……
