I'm Molly and this is my first offical garden! I've always loved plants and growing them but never had enough room for a garden! I live on the front range of Colorado, zone 5.
I have carrots, spinach, radishes(planted too late, bolted), a few different peppers, mostly bell, cabbage, sweet corn, lots of cucumbers, acorn, butternut and zucchini squash, and lots of tomoatos! I think that's it ;)
This looks like a fun and nice place for gardening tips! So any tips for crazy acorn squash!? Its taking over my tomoatos! When it sends out a vine it will grow leaves and flowers but also it tries to root into the ground, can I cut the vine and transplant the cutting? Thanks!
Happy harvest!

wow never heard of that happening with squash vines. but I do know they should be planted away from every thing else so they can spread out! Hi welcome to the forum! :)

Well they were about 3 feet from everything but now they are being wrapped everywhere I have room left! (including over and in between the fence!) But I have so many I think I might experiment and try cutting and transplanting one, I don't have much to lose since I have about 6 plants and countless blooms... at least they're happy! Thanks! :)

LOL! If the squash keeps growing at that pace you're going to have to pay the neighbors to help you eat it.
