It’s certainly been a busy couple weeks here at chez Wolpert. Â Two weekends in a row of vacation with uncharacteristically hot weeks in between. Â It’s finally cooled down enough for me to spend some time in the garden tidying things up.
The butternut squash is doing fine. No fruits yet which isn’t a good sign. I’m not sure it’s going to yield a squash before winter comes! I’ll keep trying. I’m thinking perhaps it really needs to be started indoors fairly early in a large pot.
The Zuccini is still small. Â I’m not sure we’ll get much this year. Â I had a problem with rabbits eating my seedlings so I didn’t get them to actually start until much later. Â I’ll come up with some sort of prevention for that next year.
There’s a chance we’ll have a long hot September which would allow the butternut, cucumber, and zuccini squash to really fill out. Otherwise, there’s always next year.
Stay tuned for a Tomato and Flower update!
