The flowers will wait another couple of weeks when we are home from our cruise. Everything looks so healthy, we are expected to get quite a bit of rain later this week, so our little plants should get enough water while we are gone. On, I might do a few squash plants or cukes. I swore I would never them again cause we have such a problem with squash bugs, but I have sworn off many things in my life and changed by mind.

if you plant zinnias close to the squash you will not have squash bugs it works every time in my garden . squash bugs hate zinnias .

wow, I am going to give that a try. Of course all my gardening is container but I bet I can still make it work; certainly it won't hurt and I love growing squash and cukes.

Well home from the cruise and thrilled to see all the blossoms on my tomato plants and pepper plants. Today I will be planting the squash and yes, with zinnias. I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised and have lots of bug free squash this summer.

I did buy a few packets of summer squash seed in hopes of being home and able to at least having that much fresh to enjoy this year. The fall is planned for putting in some raised beds for spring use.. 4’ wide x 50’ long. No bending planting or harvesting is the plan.

I just sprayed my rose bushes with fungicide we have had so much rain that the black spot is coming on strong so we used some fungicide and hopefully that will stop it from spreading .

I got word today from the person caring for our place in our absence that rains have turned the garden area into a bowl of porridge.

I have 3 jalapeño plants and now more jalapeños than I know what to do with.

I make these hot pickled carrots I love, but I like them to be mostly carrot.

I’m a victim of my own success this year..
