I think it is still a little early to completely uncover it as we will likely get a few more frosts, but I can now leave the can off of it and open it on the nice, dry days. It will be under a clear tarp anyway, so a good greenhouse effect to carry it through.

I also now know where all those squash seeds I threw off the deck one evening went

What was the result of your experiment? Pictures please.

Its pluggin' along. Not as tall as I had hoped but taller than last year. I did leave 2 large followers that are 75% as big as the mother, so that may have slowed her growth down a bit, and it has been a relatively short season this year, but all in all I am pleased with her progress. The tallest leaf in the pic is about 12.5 feet off the ground at its tip.

Thanks for asking!
