This weekend I had to pull out all the borage that had re-seeded itself and filled up a row in the garden. I felt bad having to pull most of it out, since the bees like to visit it so much, but I needed the space for winter squash. I left a few borage plants growing on the edges so the bees would still some have a few plants to be drawn to. The plants make good mulch in the paths, except that they're a little prickly. I hoed in compost and planted winter squash in the row. You can see the spots I planted marked with sticks.
