helping to encourage the pumpkin to spread. which it is doing at a nice rate. marigold & spreading petunias still going strong. next season, these are the flowers i will be planting in isas' patch. cut back the spearmint & mugwort radically. both are still growing. will harvest a little spearmint in the next week or two. am really understanding how quickly spearmint spreads!
the beets don't like this soil. thinking it is too compact for them to feel comfortable.
am seriously considering raised beds & square foot planting. to amend the soil properly & to maximize harvest.
