Good morning gardeners. Hot and humid yesterday. Already had a shower move through this morning. What's left of Isaias will be moving through starting around noon today. Hopefully the wind is not too bad. It's just not been a good year for the garden. That is unless you are using tons of chemicals (I'm not talking about the organic stuff). I just can't do that. The whole point of raising vegetables is to have them chemical free. Next year I need to plan better for getting the bug repelling plants in the ground. I picked a zucchini this morning and a few small bell peppers. I had expected to pick 2 cucumbers, however all I found was one of the stems attached to the vine. I'm sure it was a squirrel. So no cukes today. There were 3 half ripe cherry tomatoes on the vine so I picked them. At least the squirrel won't get them. They will be fine in a couple of days. If I don't have enough cucumbers for a batch of pickles by the end of the week I will likely hit the farmstand down the road. Your yellow squash looks nice @Sueby. My yellow squash plant is not doing all that well. I am getting a zucchini nearly everyday though. Good luck with the chick shipment @Acre4Me. I did manage to get a couple of house plants transplanted yesterday. Not much else going on, just waiting for this tropical storm to pass through. Have a great day everyone.
