Oh and if you come, I’ll be in the plant sale section. Come by and say ‘Hi’. Hope to see you there!
Aw man! I wish I could’ve been there. My hubby and I will be in Santa Fe May 12 through May 18. Anything going on then garden wise?
Not that I know of, sorry. Are you moving here in the future? Maybe you can come to a future garden fair!
Yup, in about 3 yrs. I surprisingly got ambitious this year and have around 35 various squash and cucumber plants (not giant squashes), and I have my drip irrigation in place to water while we’re on vacation. I have planted green bush vegetable marrow, Bennings green tint scallop, Patisson golden marbre scallop, Lebanese white bush marrow, orangetti, and Triamble, and then a few cucumber plants. So far I only have a few aphids, and slight beetle damage. If/when the squash bugs find them, I’ll have my work cut out!
Wow! You’ve picked some nice varieties!
