|This vine actually grew up our side deck railing.|
On Saturday, inhaling some of the last deep breaths of summer, we all (now four of us), trekked out to the garden with an agenda. The pumpkin and cucumber vines have worked there way across the open spaces between the garden beds and the side deck, making it near impossible to walk through without stepping on a plant. This wasn't too troublesome until I started to plant a fall bed next door, so it was time to take action. I used a spare trellis to spiral the excess vines upward. While some were already too big to move, I did make enough foot space to more easily plant the first round of our fall crops.
