The Butler Did It

...or maybe it was that rabbit. Either way, there are no squash plants out in my yard, and there should be. Last night I filled little pots with potting soil to re-start the squash. Since melons and cucumbers are probably equally tempting to whatever ate the squash plants, I've started those in pots, too.

When I plant them out, I will have to cover them all with netting until they are big enough to be less tasty. Luckily, I have a coupon for a nearby fabric store that I can use when purchasing more tulle netting. Tulle seems to work just fine as a substitute for the (more expensive) row-cover fabric sold through the seed catalogues that come to the house.
