I chopped my butternut squash back and harvested the immature fruit. Vines still going strong though.

I’ve had it

I’ve said about a million times I won’t grow tomatoes anymore and this time I mean it…I think. My yard is fairly shady and I put way more work into the tomatoes than I get out of them. When I compare those to say, the angel in the garden that is swiss chard, it’s not worth it. A high maintenance, labor intensive garden is not for me at this point (and probably never will be). I’m fairly lucky in that I leave almost no empty space in my garden, so weeding isn’t even an issue. I think I’ll stick to easy, pretty, high producing plants that are less needy in future. They work better with what I’ve got available and my movement away from a veggie plot towards an edible landscape.
