Garden Update Part 8

posted in: Food, Preparations | 0

Here’s the pics from this week. We had tragedy strike today from what the wife tells me. A zucchini plant that I staked up has snapped in half, and she does not think it can be stuck back together and taped (yes, I do that, and yes, it works) because of the way it broke. Oh well, we still have two more. I had to cut all of the leaves off the bottom of the plants because they were starting to get downy mildew thanks to the 10 days straight of evening thunderstorms we have had. Thanks to that, they are awfully top heavy. The poor plants haven’t had the chance to dry out for over a week, so mushrooms and other nastiness are going crazy in the gardens and yard. I am hoping for a drier week this week so they can have a break.

Yes, those are pumpkins growing.
