As soon as the silks appear, I put a pinch of Sevin dust on each ear. If it were to rain in the next day or two, I'd probably go out and re-apply the Sevin.
Remember the zucchini plant that was ruined by squash bugs? It tried to resurrect itself, but the new incarnation isn't doing much.
My recently planted zucchini, on the other hand, looks great and is forming blooms. I'm not getting my hopes up, though. I may even put up a sign saying, "Welcome, squash bugs; enjoy your new digs."
Because I laugh at pain.
I have eggplants galore.
As long as I occasionally apply a little Sevin dust, green beans have never let me down.
This one hill of cucumbers is producing far more cukes than we'll ever eat.
And now, we'll talk about those tomatoes.
These tomatoes are ripening prematurely because blight has almost killed the mother plant. I may can a few of them, although I really don't have the heart. They are pathetic little things, misshapen and splitting.
Some plants aren't as "blighty" as others, and I have hopes of getting a few larger, prettier tomatoes for the table from these before blight overtakes them completely.
So there you have it. And how does your garden grow?
