This is some of the squash we have
taking over growing in our garden.
Our yard actually.
We planted winter squashes in the two 4’ x 4’ raised beds. Our “Three Sisters” gardens – squash, corn and beans. Everything’s growing, so we’re happy.
The thing is, not only do we have squash plants from those two gardens, but we’ve also got countless rogue hybrid squash plants that sprouted from various spots near the compost bins and the back garden.
And in case you didn’t know it, squash plants are restless. They don’t sit still, even though they may appear to be just sitting there. They run, they roam, they invite themselves into your kitchen and pour themselves coffee. They open the cookie jar and the fridge and the cupboards, looking for snacks. They climb the stairs, use your toothbrush, and curl up in your bed.
They take over.
