Regrets in the garden? Not getting rid of the female asparagus plants--- there are seedlings all over the place, and if they happen to escape detection by the time they are a couple of years old they are a beggar to pull up. Then there are the volunteer tomatillos, never work down over ripe or damaged fruit with the tiller. They will volunteer for years. The same goes for the nice little orientals like bok choi, red indian mustard, suey choi, etc. If they go to seed on you you'll be weeding them out for years too. And yes, if you must plant zucchini, they should be about 1/2 mile from the other squash, lol.

My regret is planting yellow crook neck squash I have never tried before. First off the vines didn't run like I figured so grew to 4 foot tall and blocked the sun to my pepper and egg plants. I also am not real happy with the fruit and it has a rough skin and huge seeds. No cutting them into slices and frying them. The work great in a soup after you split them and scoop the seeds out. I think I saw some deer down by the creek using a seed as a raft.
