Volunteer Squash

Chelsie Anderson, Garden Expert

It is hard to compost seeds, and me, being an impatient composter, I tend to spread my compost before it is totally finished.

As a result I get some volunteer veggies every year.

This year it was primarily squash and tomatoes.

While I generally weed out most of these babies, I left the squash as they were filling a bare spot in garden and there was mulch covering the soil (perfect to keep squash from rotting!)

They grew better than any of the plants I deliberately seeded.

Did you have any volunteers in your garden this year?

Tell us your stories.
