My trombocino squash plant is spreading everywhere in my front raised bed, swamping the baby butternut vines, the herbs, and the Sweet Million tomato that share that bed. Yikes, I think, as I’m trying to figure out how to subdue it.
I have to step carefully around it as I harvest the Sweet Millions and look for young developing squash.
Somehow I missed this large squash - hidden in the middle of the bed. (Normally, I like to harvest them much smaller, but fortunately it’s still quite nice.)
I need to get out and prune off the yellowing leaves, but haven’t had the time.
Thank goodness that this year is a low insect and disease year so far, so the rambunctious garden still looks attractive in front of the house.
This was a week or so ago. The squash are on the left. Beans and tomatoes are trying to keep up.
The blessings of a late summer garden.
