I was determined to really go for it this year with the squashes. The big pumpkins have been the talk of the town for the past two years. But this year, here we are in early July and the plants have barely moved. I have been watering and feeding and still they sit there. They have had loads of manure dug in and have a healthy strawy manure mulch and still they sit there. I have watered them and still they sit there. How much longer do I need to wait for them to suddenly take off? Are they busy making huge roots under the soil so they will suddenly rocket across the bed? I hope so.
