A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a new venture for us-container gardening. We went out of town for 4 days last week and were not sure how the garden would fare. Container gardens need watering everyday and we were hoping it would rain when we were gone. I don’t think it did.
We came home to a mixed blessing. We had one cherry tomato plant that did not look good from the moment we transplanted it and now it appears to have some type of disease.
The scales are pretty visible in this photo. . .
The other casualty of our trip was the green peppers. I am hoping the problem with these plants is a lack of water and that time and TLC will bring them back to health.
Since this is our first attempt at gardening in a very long time, the only thing we knew to do was to remove the sick plants from the vicinity of the healthy ones and watch them closely. Hopefully time will help them recover.
The rest of our plants are really thriving. The other tomato plant has baby tomatoes on it.
The zucchini is blossoming and spreading as well as the cucumbers.
The truly amazing success is the yellow crook neck squash. Everyone of the plants is doing fantastic.
We have 6 of these squash plants and they are full of buds, so I guess I better get busy searching out some recipes to use the fruit of our labors.
