Win some, lose some

You know how a lot of people with gardens have a proliferation of zucchini right now? How they have so much they run out of people to give it to and they get so sick of it they end up making zucchini breads and cakes and cookies? Well, lets just say, that doesn't happen to everyone.

Sad, sad, sad. Looks like those 2 squash in the last post aren't going to be followed by similar ones anytime soon. Squash vine borers have made a mess of my summer squash plants. I tried extracting them (Ew! Ew ew ew!!!!!) and covering the stems with dirt but afraid it's just too late. There are just no fruits on these plants to be seen anywhere. I'll probably pull them out this weekend and maybe start again. If I plant the seeds soon and keep a closer eye out for these buggers I might get a little crop at the end of the season. For now I guess I'll just have to keep an eye on the pretty peppers and the pretty tomatoes that should be ready for harvesting any day now...

Oh no, sorry to hear about your garden woes! All part of the learning curve, I guess.

I love your log cabin baby blanket, btw!
