Hey, How’d That Zucchini Get There?

Posted on

I swear two days ago these were not there.
Holy Zukes!
After the year I didn’t get a single zucchini I’m delighted that my plants are behaving like proper zucchini-out of control and surprising me with humongous specimens.  The tomato plants are also quite large and positively laden with many tomatoes (still quite a ways from being ripe.)

Four cherry tomatoes ripened very early. I’m told they were good. Personally, I don’t eat them raw! I love the idea of standing in the garden and picking a tomato and popping it into my mouth, but ew. Fortunately, Tabby doesn’t feel the same way and declared this tomato “juicy.”

I was surprised and delighted to discover a few other things well on their way to growing into nice things, such as several watermelon

I have one red cabbage and my fingers are crossed that nothing bad happens to it. It looks like something has been nibbling on the leaves of my brussels sprouts plants. Get away, Japanese beetles!!
