I’m not sure the leaves as a mulch is the way to go, more of an experiment, but one I’ve done before. Just trying to give the soil a chance to not get hit by the blazing sun, get a shot of a little acid from runoff from the leaves, and not dry out as fast. The leaves I had by the bushel and are free.

I guess decaying leaves will rob nitrogen from the soil, but I’m not working these in yet. I’ve used pine straw as mulch, but didn’t have much of that, although there’s some pine needles in with the leaves. A little bit of Spanish moss too, Just everything my wife likes to rake up in the yard and set aside. Some yard debris gets composted in the compost bins, but I get too many leaves to fit in the bins.

Sweet corn patch. Various melons or squash on the edges.







Carmello tomatoes are my early stars.





Selfies with the plants.

At this point, I might wish I had done more than three carmello tomatoes, they are doing so well. I get intrigued with these other heirloom plants, but I’m not sure any are all that productive around here. We will see. I bought a food scale and plan on weighing the tomatoes from each plant and get some solid numbers on what produces how much.

Very nice, Meadowlark. I bought a package of spaghetti squash seeds on a lark, seeds of change heirloom, and package mentioned 4-6’ vines. Main vine is 10’ and still going. No fruiting yet, but male blooming has begun.

I fully intended to get some of those spaghetti squash seeds this year...have a relative that loves spaghetti squash...but alas, must have forgotten.

Interested in how yours performs...with the back log on seeds I probably can't get it for 2 or 3 months.

I have about 20 of those seeds remaining in the original package. I’ll be happy to send them to you if you like. They are year 2020 seeds. Should be able to get them in USPS mail by Friday at the latest.
