Don't worry about forgetting things, I am same age as you and I'd forget my head if... you know the rest of it. Tomatoes are a big thing because those have already been monkeyed with, GM wise, so I don't think I can trust whatever I find at the local nurseries.
Hey good going on the squash, that's great to be able to do, you must have had a lot of it (squash is like that, I remember it takes over the earth! ) We've got plenty of manure nearby--chicken. When I first moved to this town, one day I was driving behind a big semi and the smell started wafting back to my car. It got stronger and stronger, I almost , my eyes were watering it was so strong. Now I'm used to it. Every year they spread it on all the fields in late summer/early fall when the weather is the hottest, man! the smell!! But great for veggies, so that's what I use. I tried cow and horse, but the chicken is much better here with this soil and climate. And we grow things year round, always something, and only about 30 days when you can't plant so I should make use of that advantage. Guess the farmers around here have already figured that out.
