Last week, I spied my first baby Black Beauty zucchini on my biggest squash plant. As long as the bees keep visiting, we’ll have plenty of zucchini to grill on the BBQ this summer.
I have tomatoes in containers that require watering twice daily.
I have two Better Boy tomato plants and two Beefsteak tomato plants in the garden on the west side of the house which gets full sun throughout the day. We’ll have plenty of tomatoes this season for the two of us and to give away.
Spying on a zucchini plant is fascinating. In the early morning, when it’s cool outside, the showy blooms are fully open; they look similar to a hibiscus flower but bigger.
I took this photo last night of one of my Better Boy plants. What perfection!
And this is my gorgeous and thriving zucchini plant (as of last night). My other zucchini plants I grew from seed and they’re in the process of catching up to this size. They were extremely easy to grow from seed. In fact, I had so many that I gave a few to our mason and a couple to Joe who helped us with the siding and vaulted ceiling drywall.
