Finally got around to planting our extra summer and zucchini squash plants. The 6-packs, for each variety, I bought in early summer had SO many more that six plants. I planted what I thought we could handle and the extras I potted up.
They really weren't doing too well in the small pots with all this heat, not to mention that we're tired of watering them, so I was prepared to add them to the compost pile in a composting way. However, I thought I had nothing to lose by sticking them in the dirt and giving them a drink of water.
Let's see how they do. If they live and produce it's a WIN for us, and if they don't no harm no foul. either way they're gonna be compost.
