Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Another Harvest Monday


Tomatoes and cucumbers are the extent of my harvest. Peppers are doing nothing. Eggplants are growing exceedingly slowly. Zucchini doesn't seem to want to form and beans haven't bloomed yet.

Picked this past week: 21 tomatoes and 5 cucumbers.

See other harvests at Daphne's Dandelions.

My peppers didn’t want to grow due to lack of water, could that be the problem. And you can always try hand pollinating zucchinis.
Tomatoes and cucumbers do look great!

I'm sure we can send you home with some zucchini when you visit. Maybe you should try hand pollinating in the mean time.

I am so happy to hear that someone else is having problems with their zucchini. I'm about ready to rip mine out!!

Enjoy those tomatoes :)

My zucchini is having issues too. The borers got to it so it is really struggling. I hope I get a few more before it gets pulled.

Our peppers are hardly growing too. And don't get me started on the broccoli and eggplant. They are growing soooo slowly. It's so painful! We pulled 2 of our squash plants, they were decimated by the bugs and the heat.

So I'm really not alone in able to grow zucchini this year! Your cucumbers and tomatoes look great, though.

My peppers aren't doing much either. It has been so hot this year you would think they would be prolific.

Add me to the list of zucchini failures for 2010.
