I need more ROOM
Monday, 20 Jun 11 30°C / 86°F
I need more ROOM. I focus on herbs and edibles, which want sun, and much of our yard is shaded by trees in other yards.
I wanted one of the empty plots in the community garden down the block, but it is apparently “closed” unless you know the right person. I don’t. The plots stand unplanted and weedy. What a waste.
I also planned to plant my brother’s sunny hillside with things that take more room – squash, melons, beans – but we lost our car and I can’t get there any more.
I have wash tubs full of pots with squash that need to be planted out NOW, and no place to go with them. I am going to try solarizing a weed strip along the fence – full sun, but full of invasives. I will mow it, turn it, and stake it with black plastic. Then punch holes for the squash. Worst case, the squash is choked out, but I have to take the shot.
