Leaf mulch for squashes

The squashes were sown in april in a greenhouse and planted out in mid may.

In spite of the challenging weather this year these squashes grown in leaf mulch have done very well.

The leaves were collected last autumn and piled about 3′ high.

Before the squashes were planted I prepared small planting areas with compost, grass cuttings, comfrey leaves and wormery compost.
