My Zuchini is talking over the world
I'm feeling better today, I've recovered from my check day ordeal. I have to work today and I have Lissa this weekend so I'm practicing my not cussing now. No F bombs or C word. She's such a parrot. We've had a perfect weather cycle of rain and heat, rain and heat. It's like living in a greenhouse. Very cool. The Zuchs are amazing, as is most everything else I planted. See that yellow arrow? That's Cantaloupe. Poor old Mushys, they look stunted. I planted the Cantaloupes seeds on the same day I planted the Zuchs and Watermelons. I don't know why they're so small. And that red arrow is a hot pepper. They look stunted too. But, that's okay, because I don't like them. I just think they're pretty. The corn is big and strong and the rest of the garden is great. I lost an Eggplant, my only garden casualty, so far. My Radishes are weird. Most of them are three feet high. I suspect that's due to the unusually favorable weather, but, you have to admit..that's weird. We eat them all the time, but, now I'm going to rip out the row because they are into the Tomatoes. Who ever heard of giant Radishes?? I'll plant some more somewhere else. They're one of those things you can plant all Summer because they grow fast. I have tons of various Lettuce ready and Spinich. The rabbits didn't care for it at all. So far, I have no bug or animal damage. Oh, and I have lots of hot peppers and bell peppers in another garden doing fine. It's odd how plants decide where they like to be, isn't it? I see a few small weeds, if it bothers you, feel free to bring your hoe over. I'll make the lemonade. Or sun tea..your choice.
