Finally! The rain stopped this morning and I was able to get outside and photograph our garden’s precise example of “good growth getting choked out”!
We have this one butternut squash that grew through the chicken wire fence around the garden. When the squash was young and small, it fit through the wire just fine, but as it grew, the fence choked it and it was stuck there….all further growth restricted by the wire around its throat. It was left alone: now pretty much good for nothing…except getting its picture taken! 😉
