-Plant squash and zucchini again next year. We stopped planting them this year due to the invasion of the dreaded squash vine borer last year. We have learned that the best way to combat the borer is to skip a year planting squash. We did plant butternut squash this year and had get production. It is described as the most resistant to the borer.
-We may plant less okra to make room for more squash. Our okra production has been terrific. It is the most consistent, longest growing crop
-Our cover crop of vetch and rye grass were terrific, even thought at first we thought we were going to get nothing due to the lack of rain. This year we plowed the cucumber field as soon as we could and planted crimson clover and rye grass. The rains on Oct. 7-8 will give a good spurt of growth.
More to follow. Ellen
