We have quite a few volunteer squash plants growing from our compost pile. It always seems like the volunteers grow better than the seeds that are planted with intent. I'm not complaining though. I will take anything I can grow that is also edible.
Maybe next year we will have things figured out a little better. This is our 2nd year of vegetable gardening. We learn something new each season. We are still trying to figure out what we can grow in our shady yard. Our carrots only got to baby finger size, our beets were the size of bouncy balls. (Thank God we don't have to depend on what we grow. We would starve for sure.)
We were successful in growing lettuce, potatoes & squash. Herbs grow abundant in our yard, so we are thankful for that. I'm glad we have a CSA and parent's that are happy to share from their gardens.
