In the Ground
This afternoon, as the sun was going down behind the mountains, I drove to the property in Magatas and set out the yellow squash seedlings I started about 11 days ago. If I manage to get squash from these plants, it will be my first success in growing vegetables since we arrived here almost 3 years ago.
The yellow squash I tried growing before became the victim of the heavy rains. The butternut squash I attempted to grow last July died from the heat and lack of rain. The tomato plants given to us by some American friends, failed to produce blossoms.
As I mentioned before, I've set these squash plants in an area where, I hope, the shade will protect the plants from too much direct, Philippine sunshine.
