A gardening question for you — have you ever grown pumpkins or squash and had to reroute their direction? One of our gardens is so full, it is about two weeks away from completely taking over the walkway to the front door. With the new winter garden on the other side of the path, I’m soon going to be walking on either baby beets or surly pumpkins to go to and from each day.

My idea is to put in a small series of picket posts to give the pumpkins something else to crawl and push them back into the garden space away from the path. Any ideas?
