February 18, 2011 - Oh, Dear!

As nice as the butternut squash that were stored inside all winter looked, the two that were left out in the garden shed.......well, let's just say they didn't keep very well!


Oh, dear! I'm not looking forward to cleaning that counter!

  10. That is a pretty well rotted squash! LOL! A shovel should get it to the compost pile quickly enough. :D I cringe to think what the shelving looks like under it though. Yuck!

  11. Granny, what do you mix with your compost and in what quanities? Do you use vermiculite and perlite and all of that stuff?

  12. Spiderjohn, I am a failure at making my own compost. I don't have enough room, nor do I have enough vegetation to make anything more than a compost barrel full. I buy dairy compost from a nursery near by, for $20 a yard, and top all my beds with it. The first year for this garden (2008) I planted all my seeds and plants in that straight compost. My garden was lush, healthy and beautiful that year. I do add vermiculite and sphagnum peat to it for containers.
