North Texas Garden . Quick Update

                                         Squash, cukes, and zukesWe ate three           zucchini last night, not in this photo.

This one color mixed squash...another one growing on this same plant.

Tomatoes and blossoms galore...just need more growing time

Cucumber vines from two plants. Harvested first 3 today. May 17

Tomatoes are outta control.!!!

Zuke and squash raised bed.

Cantaloupe wicking tub. Got a late start with this tub, but it's doing good.

Dang, it's been a WET SPRING, and our forecast is saying 3 more inches coming over the next 5-6 days.!! My plants love the rain....but need SUNSHINE.

I've been fighting some Powdery Mildew on a few squash plants, but I think I caught it early enough.  All these wet, overcast days don't help it though.

I'm really salivating waiting for a tomato sandwich.!!!!



  1. You sure do have a green thumb! Your plants are doing great, I have never seen a color mixed squash.

    I have not had a tomato sandwich in just made me want one. I saw how much rain your area has received and will continue to get in the coming days. You guys stay safe.

  2. Thanks Ms Belinda. I've been having great luck with this new gardening method of "wicking tubs". We shall see how the rest of the growing season goes. We need some sunshine!!
