I ripped out my one zucchini plant. It was covered in powdery mildew, the flowers had been knocked off by torrential rains, and all of the new flowers were male. I put it out of its misery.

For anyone who has read this entire thread, many, many pages back, I mentioned that this was my first year doing any sort of garden. Well, it has definitely been a learning experience. We planted a few cilantro plants which started producing pretty much right away. Then after about a month, they grew like weeds and looked like them. All they did was flower which didn't do us any good. Reading about this, it seemed that they weren't getting enough water even though all the other veggies were doing fine. I tried trimming them in hopes that they wouldn't need as much water, but it probably did more harm than good. Next year, I will pass on growing these.


Another learning experience was in the planting itself. I royally under-estimated the size that some veggie plants can get. We planted two zucchini plants and they both are starting to produce, but wow the plants take up a lot of real estate. They were overtaking a few other pepper plants which we have to the point where the pepper plants weren't getting any sun at all. Having said that, the picked zucchini's we have harvested tasted AMAZING.


Our tomato plants are growing like wildfire and within a few weeks, I'll be up to my eyeballs in Beefsteak tomatoes and cherry tomatoes.
The first year I planted Zucchini plants I was amazed too at how big they get! The leaves are Gi-normus!! LOL This year I made sure to give it plently of space! There is so many things you can make with Zucchini and I just love that

I made the mistake of planting my tomato plants in the same spot as last year and they did not do very well. Live and learn though!

SO much rain here. Sadly I think that will be the end of my garden for the summer plants. I may still get some green beans. Next week I will try to plant some spinach and lettuce for a fall crop.

Tomatoes basically over. Disease. Squash under attack from what I know not. I think I'll bag up a dead one and visit the local extension agent tomorrow. I've got two more plantings from just germinated to a few days growth one them and don't want to lose them. Okra just really beginning to produce freezing amounts. As soon as soil is tillable I think the broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts can be transplanted.
