I was assured by the info on the seed packs that the summer squash on the left and the winter squash on the right were both of a type that occupied a "compact" environment. So I planted them both in the same modest sized lasagna bed. After a month and a half of growth, they don't seem so compact do they?

It has been one of those years where Mother Nature has decided to keep us all guessing. First, there was the tug of war between Spring and Winter that lasted far longer than it should have. Then we had a similar situation between Spring and Summer. And then, there has been the rain, lots of it! All in all it has been a season to remember as far as the weather is concerned.
So I put things into the garden and crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. The first of the summer squash are now here and once they start coming, they come fast. I'm glad to have them and hope my plant can stay healthy for at least another month. If Mother Nature cooperates, of course.
