It's our first year in Christmas Cottage and I got over excited about the overgrown raised beds and cleared everything and planted all kinds! I've had a very good harvest from most things and my sprouts are showing promise. However, both my Butternut Squash and Pumpkins are growing vegetables and then rotting. Am I doing something wrong? I've read about plenty of water which I've been doing and the weather has helped. I've not put anything under the veg which some suggest to keep them from the soil - does this work?
