Winter Squash Patch with Pictures

jrslick (North Central Kansas, Zone 5B)June 23, 2011

Today I was able to cultivate my winter squash patch. Much of the patch is up and starting to put out the first flag leaf. I have a problem with velvet leaf. I can pull the drag disk, with a 4-wheeler, between the rows. It worked great. Now I have to go back and hoe around the plants. I can do each 175 foot row in about 20 minutes. Not too bad. I am thankful there are only 8 rows.

The Drag Disc

The South 4 rows

The North 4 rows

I hope all goes well!
