Sorry folks, the 3 day weekend turned into a 5. Rolled in to my driveway yesterday after nothing at all going to plan - but that's life isn't it?
I thought I'd update you on the garden since we missed Tuesday.
Something large decided to lay down in my zucchini patch, crushing and partially uprooting all 3 plants.
I was hoping the plant would correct itself but I got one zucchini all week instead of the 1+ a day I was harvesting before. Bummer.
Tomatoes are a mixed bag. On the up side, they are ripening! On the down, about 1 out of 3 is rotting or being eaten by worms. My grandfather-in-law, the long time gardener, told me to pick them as soon as they start to turn color and let them ripen in the window instead of on the vine, so I will try that.
Do you remember what bolting is? Well my cilantro is case in point. It is a colder weather herb and it got too hot so it flowered before I ever got to taste it. One of my basil plants started flowering as well so I pulled it and cut a LOT off the other plants to help prevent them from following suit too quickly.
Like I said before, I'm learning a lot in my first little garden.
