Misadventures in veggie gardening, exhibit A: I don’t think we spaced our seedlings correctly in some of our beds, like this one, and so our zucchinis are on their way to invading the leeks. At least we are able to guide the stems and leaves away and off the sides of the bed for now — does this stunt the zucchini at all? It seems hardy and unstoppable.
Also, the growth from the several cosmos flowers on the other side (not pictured) are beginning to invade the leeks from the left front, so I think I need to prune those a bit. Any tips on keeping this bed in order, or what to consider for next time? I think one or two zucchini plants would have been fine — we have seven! — and/or I’d give them their own bed. General advice, including “WTF are you thinking?!” comments, are welcome 🙂
