The Squash Jungle
So July is finally here, and I have discovered that all those squash seeds that I threw in the dirt after the last of the Colorado bad weather killed off my second batch of sweet potatoes....have now sprouted...and grown.....till I feel like I need a weed wacker to explore my tiny community plot. The season had one snow on mother's day....thank you Colorado...and a severe hail storm/ tornado warning that had me and Matt hiding in a cooler in Safeway for at least 15 minutes before we decided to run for it and head home to be with the dogs. So after 2 batches of sweet potatoes...I can say...this year is not a sweet potato year. But in it's place, are tons of greens, beets, radishes, turnips, kale, carrots, peas.....and now squash plants. So time will tell what powdery mildew will bring to us but for now.....there are some squash leaves in my green smoothies in the morning.
