It’s certainly been a busy couple weeks here at chez Wolpert. Two weekends in a row of vacation with uncharacteristically hot weeks in between. 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. I’m not sure we’ll get much this year. I had a problem with rabbits eating my seedlings so I didn’t get them to actually start until much later. 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!
