Last week we planted 400 squash plants in the Market Garden (and have since followed that up with 200 courgette plants to supplement the 100 already in).
|Hector, Polly and Matt get the ball rolling.|
|Rob, Ben, Evan and Matt nearing the end.|
We spread two trailer-loads of our own compost on the patch, rotovated it in, covered it with mipex (woven black weed-suppressant), planted squash through holes cut in the mipex at 1m intervals, put a tyre round each plant, and covered the whole lot in mesh until the plants settle in.
Many thanks to all the planters - and compost spreaders, tyre carriers, mipex layers etc...
