Digging in the dirt. I'm happy to report I finally got my squash in the ground. This year I employed the "get the crap planted and hope for the best" method of gardening.
When we lived on the farm I used the "honey can you disk this little spot up for me" method which always resulted in a garden bigger than one woman could care for and stay sane.
The first year I gardened in Oklahoma I used the square foot garden method and loved it. Some really sick part of me likes the nice orderly squares. The sandbox frame does a great job of keeping birds and cats out of the bed. Please note the difference in this picture and the one up top. It's sad.
This year gardening has been the last thing on my mind. Instead of starting with seeds and ending up with plants, I dreamed up 99 ways to tear up the house and irritate my husband.
So this year I'm planting my leggy little store-bought squash and hoping for the best. If I get one I'll be happy and any more will send me over the moon.
All I can do is try harder next year and hopefully get my act together a whole lot quicker.
How is your garden growing?
