Harvest + Good News

I have good news to report. It seems like some of the squash zucchini plants made it through the squash borer's infestation! The plants seem to be thriving again. : ) Thanks for all the tips. Although, the squash it is producing shrivels up and dies while it is still tiny. I think this might be because it has been way too hot lately! You can see in the background that the tomato plants are struggling with the heat too.


I think I am going to say that the cucumber plants are a bust! No cucumbers has been produced so far, well not any edible ones. The few that grew went from green to yellow and then fell off. I was waiting for them to get bigger... maybe I was supposed to pick them when they were green.. I don't know, they didn't look fully formed to me! I will browse around for pics of what a cucumber is supposed to look like.

The tomato plants are still producing plenty of tomatoes! We picked over 50 one day! And they taste good too. I think next year, we will plant more tomato plants.



I will add a pic of my jalapeño plant later but as you can see, it is producing peppers!!
That's about it for now.

  1. great thing to get the squash to keep on with the SVB. Squash and cukes turning yellow and falling off while small is because they didn't get pollinated. This often happens early in the season and sometimes later when it gets really hot. Give them a bit, they should start setting good fruit soon
