Hi everybody,
New here. I just wanted to share something I just found in a book. To save a ton of space in your garden or raised beds.......plant pumpkin, squash, zuccini, etc by doing the following:
set a bail of staw on the ground, cut side up, and soak it with water for a couple of days. Punch two holes in the top about the size of your fist, 4 or so inche deep. Make them 2' appart. Fill the indentations with a good mix of compost. Now plant your seeds in the dirt and you have an instant raised bed squash garden.
