and here we are. the garden is full, especially the tomato plants. fingers-crossed that the weather will warm enough to push those fruits into a ripe, bountiful harvest. meanwhile the broccoli and kales and cool-weather lovers are thriving. this morning’s garden report is not favorable for our winter squash crop. between the powdery mildew and squash bugs, the plants are very week and are struggling to produce fruit. sad to imagine an autumn and winter with out beautiful winter squash. let us hope we will not have to endure such a fate.
