Spearmint Plants and Effect on Growth of Other Plants
I have a patch of spearmint plants growing. If I pull them up and plant some vegetable plants there, will there be any problems getting them to grow there? I planted some squash plants there last year and they just died.

First, you'll want to make sure that all the spearmint has been removed, as these plants are somewhat invasive. Since you have had problems in the past with squash, you may want to get the soil tested to find out what nutrients may be missing in the soil, as well as the pH level. Once you have done this, you can correct any issues.
