The volunteer squash I was whining about the other day got transplanted.
Thank you for your comments. They helped me get over the wave of inertia that swept over me whenever I looked at it, which was all the time. It was right in the middle of the garden, and I couldn’t go anywhere without it giving me the “and what are you going to do about it?” look.
It’s in an entirely different part of the garden now, an eclectic part, a sort of Isle of the Misfit Plants. In the pic above around the squash are zinnias, baby peach trees, a bush bean that came with the shovelful of squash, some kind of salvia, a cherry tree, and part of an elderberry bush. And I think I just saw a leaf from a potato that I forgot and left in the ground last year, photobombing on the lower left. The errant squash should feel right at home here.
The squash seems to be alive. There are some larger leaf losses, but the little leaf growing tips look okay.
Your comments on the volunteer squash post revealed I am not alone in my plight.
Now I want to know I am not the only one with a strange little spot filled with oddball plants. What have you got?
