Planting squash.

We planted just over 140 squash plants out on the market garden on Wednesday 1st July, of 11 different varieties, some tried and tested and some experimental.
A labour of many hours spread over many weeks, the squash patch covered in dung ready for rotovating.

Mipex laid on the ground (salvaged from our destroyed polytunnel, with holes already cut but at tomato vine spacings).

Wind mesh erected around the patch.

Sarah and Alice planting a squash in every third hole.

The patch fully planted (including 24 plants that didn't fit inside the mesh, planted next to it along the outside).
