    My squash is growning like a trifford do I just let it grow or would it pay to pinch it out

    my french tarragon took off like a rocket in early spring, now has dwindled away. Should I spread and replant what's left of the tubers, or wait and hope for next spring?

    Can plant single but 2-3 might be better. Might be better to plant at end of summer than now in the hot and wet season.
