Galeux d’Eysenes and Triamble winter squashes
I have now seen how the other half lives and I have decided I like where I live just fine, thank you.
What could I possibly be talking about? It seems I complain, in about every third post, about my clay soil. Never again! I have had direct experience, in the form of the school’s garden, with soil that is not majority clay and…no thank you. Nope.
I wouldn’t say the school’s garden has been an abject failure, because it has not! NO, we’re harvesting all kinds of things from it. It is rather loose soil, pretty sandy, so seedlings barely have a chance and you can almost forget about planting seeds unless you cover them with wet burlap OR can count on a wet spring. But between that sandy soil and the *($%# deer, it’s been a…learning year in the school’s garden.
Fortunately, I realized quite early that the garden could be troublesome, so…I planted extra stuff here at home.
