Good morning everyone
This is my very first post about gardening and I would like to have suggestions and if it's possible a little help!
I've planted butternut squash, charlevoix peas, tepory beans blue speckled, and different types of tomatoes (dwarf wild fred, blanche du quebec, rosella purple, adelaide festival, matchless austin strain).
IT has been a lot of work and now all of them look strong and producing fruits in the case of the peas! But I have a problem with my butternut squash.. Only the female flowers bloomed and I'm still waiting for the male ones to open. I've already lost 3 female flowers and tomorrow other 4 female flowers will open! I don't have any males to pollinate them
In th case of my tomatoes.. the stems are looking so strong and the leaves so big in comparison to other tomatoes that I have seen that I don't know if I should prune some of them.. I've been cutting suckers from my indeterminates tomatoes and the other one I just leave them as they are.
I used at the beginning a organic fertilizer and since the last month I've only used home made compost tea.. seems to work very good.
I've tried to give some of my tomatoes due to over crowding in the pots and leave only 1 plant but I got used to having all of them now..
If anyone have some male flowers of any kind of squash that can exchange for a tomato plant I'll be very happy! Or if anyone knows how to solve this problem at least?
