Just ten days after this the corn looks really great. We've had ten days of sunny weather. Pole beans are wrapping around the corn stalks and in some cases leaping from stalk to stalk. Today I finished wrapping this bed with bird netting to see if I can discourage the stinking raccoons.
This is my Oregon Homestead squash which I am hand pollinating following Carol Deppe's instructions from the Resilient Gardener. We might get three squash off this plant but I am mainly interested in seed for next year.
