So I harvested all of ONE squash from the 5 plants that I planted. 4 are still alive and doing ok but apparently they don't want to reproduce. The cucumbers decided to up and die.
So now I'm on to the winter season plantings (despite the 100+ degree heat). A little arugula in place of the cukes, along with a Sequoia strawberry plant. We shall see how they fare and if it is in fact this particular bed that is doomed to failure.
