I harvested a lot of squash and ate it. I learned not to let it grow too much as it gets hard and full of seeds. There are plants still creeping in that one garden as I have three. I also learned the soil is depleted of nutrients once the harvest is taken. All energy goes into the plants. I replant 1/3 of the harvest and replenish soil with leaves and old rotten wood with bugs. Recently with compost. I have to work the soil and care for it constantly. Other garden is Lima beans, potatoes, melons, Alvarado trees and lemon trees. I am keeping a good supply of potted plants for the winter coming. They are an orange tree, brockley, Brussels sprouts,lettuse, and water melons.My soil got very clay like in the gardens so I put compost soil on top with cow manure in it. I poked around and loosened it up a bit but I really got to get out their and mix the soil and dig some trenches tomorrow. It's a lot of dig work but I like it.
I'm in Vidor Texas near Houston about one and an half hour from Houston.
