I planted out five butternut squash plants today. They are the surviving five of nine. As a bit of an experiment I made a slight mound on the newly dug earth and covered it with some landscaping fabric which I have pegged down. Through this I have planted the squash plants.Lets see how they grow! Oh yes I liberally sprinkled the edges of the fabric with slug pellets.I also harvested nearly 2lbs of raspberries today so perhaps its eton mess for pudding this week. I might even have to do raspberry jam if they keep on coming.
