squash seeds went in the ground - table queen acorn, table king acorn, butternut and yokohama; the last one came well recommended from baker creek seeds.
from japan in the mid 1800's. not a variety you would find at your local nursery.
so the garden is pretty much done, just the last layering of straw to finish it up.
we will see how once a week watering works for squash. coir has been added to the soil and with the layer of straw, i hope 2016 proves to be a water efficient year in the vegetable garden; just as 2015 proved it could be.
