Yellow Squash Update
While preparing to write this post; I kept trying to think of ways to bring humor into my writing. I guess I have too much logic; 'cause I couldn't think of anything funny to say about yellow squash.
So here goes the logic of the yellow squash:
I started these little babies in paper pots made from newspaper in or around the end of February. They sprouted really quickly and I was quite happy with my new little green thumb. On Good Friday I planted them in my raised garden. (Although I tried one in a grow bag; that little sucker didn't survive.) But these little beauties are doing quite nicely.
I was a little concerned about whether I would have to hand pollinate them; but so far they must be pollinating on their own. Its been a very windy Spring; so perhaps that's done the trick.
After taking this picture, I picked this little guy up off the ground very gently and tried to give him a little support from another stem. I think that will discourage potential disease.
This picture is from a different view. Very excited and proud of my two little yellow crookneck squash plants.
