Looks like no tomatillos and no squash this season.
I will try replanting from Burpee, but our growing
season is so short and I have already lost a month
I would say to stay away form these folks:
I had a very strange experience with tomatillos (first time I've
planted them). I planted 4 pots indoors, and only one had sprouts.
A couple weeks later I put that tray on the porch so the plants
could adjust before I found time to set them in the ground. In a
couple days, the other 3 pots had plants.
Tomatillos even survive my Black Thumb! I have had them reseed
for two years after I grow them. All over the place -- not where I
want them though.
Last year's failed as I was doing an experiment with them.
This year was just bad seeds.
I have new squash and tomatillos seeds coming from Burpee.
IMPORTANT: tomatillos do not self pollinate. To get any fruit,
you have to have two or more plants. And put them close enough
together so they can pollinate each other. I put mine two feed apart.
You will also notice that they will branch into each other. I presume
it is for pollination.
