I'm jealous LM.... your volunteer squash plants look better than my carefully planted and well pampered squash in my 4 X 10 MM bed. Sad

This is why I now plan on planting my squash in the compost pile.  They like it better there than any place else.

All of the basil in the squash bed are volunteers.  Lemon or Lime basil




 I had to pull a lot of it out so the peppers in the middle could grow but I left a lot hoping the SVB wouldn't be able to find the squash stems.  What a Face

I think it's a bunching onion from somewhere last year. When I stirred up the box with more compost last spring this stray seed must have been moved.

I also noticed today that there are a few tomatoes sprouting in my newest box built earlier this month for my fall crops, so they are from the compost. Kinda late for baby toms in these parts but I'll find a home for them anyway in hopes of seeing what kind they are.
