mel's mix very loose, must stake the squash
Well, yesterday - the little storm that came thru blew all of my yellow squash plants over onto their side, so I had to add stakes to keep them in place. Man, this mel's mix just isn't able to hold the large plants up at all. But, it sure does grow things well. As this whole sfg, and mel's mix is new to me - i'll be better prepared for next year. The stakes will go into place as soon as the small plants emerge from seed. I'm anticipating having to stake my okra also, as soon as it gets larger. Just wanted to share the info.
