I really like your pergola. I have my one sweet potato plant left. I also had a problem with my summer squash with worms and squash bugs. I did much better with them in the late fall/winter, no worms.
Hi Ava, I asked my husband to check with the guy from work and he got his original sweet potatoes from ones he purchased at a local market, then he's been growing them for several years from the fingerlings - never bought even one plant. Does them in his potato boxes each year. I might try Cuban squash or a winter squash in the fall. I heard they don't have as many issues with vine borers or diseases.
