Years ago my hubby's grandfather grew his squash in hanging baskets. I thought that was absolutely brilliant! I am finally trying that theory out this year. I think this was lemon cucumber. The rest of my squash is under netting this year thanks to possible squash vine borers, but I left this one uncovered to see if this would work. I doubt it as when I potted squash in pots it never stopped them!
This year I have a TON of volunteer ground cherries!
My cabbage was being eaten by a big fat caterpillar! Nothing that a dose of been oil wouldn't smother! I keep a sprayer full of it and apply every few days and after rainstorms. Looks like it is working as the new growth is unmarred!
