I’m just coming off of a 10 day heat wave into a little rain and another 2 day heat advisory with temps climbing into the 100s. The irrigation system seems to keep my plants thriving with the exception of the zucchini.
I have two plants and one is looking even sorrier than the other…yellow droopy leaves just waiting to drop. I spy some flowers and another zucchini growing at the base but I’m not sure how long this will survive. Unsure if this is a disease, bug or due to all the heat. Please share your thoughts… These plants did produce about 6 – 8 zucchini so far. 😦
In other news…it’s almost tomato and cucumber time and I can’t wait!! Remember when I thought the cucumber plant had died and planted another one just in case?? Well they both lived and are THRIVING. So much so that it’s officially allowed to grow out of the garden:
That round thing in the second picture is a cucumber. Strange they’re growing round, but maybe they’ll get longer soon.
Tomatoes are everywhere but not yet ripe. I’m sure that they’ll all ripen at once.
I think I’m going to have to really get into making sauce and freezing it with these bad boys:
The peppers are still producing both the Ziggy Star or Hungarian Wax, Major Tom or Sweet Bell Peppers, and the hot mix only recently began producing as well.
I leave you with an image of my woolly garden. The tomatoes are reaching over the stakes!
