Zucchini Boats From the Garden

Zucchini Boats From the Garden

July, much like June, has been hot and very dry. But while many of my plants are suffering, the zucchini and other summer squash plants are thriving. If anything, they have done their best in years. The past 3 years I had real issues with powdery mildew. Last year I didn’t even get one squash before that settled in. The dry heat might just be good for this…..so at least we will be eating delicate summer squash it seems 😉

The first to produce were my two Bush Baby plants. I love the stripe color, and the shape is more like a crookneck squash. Best picked before they get over 7-8″ long.
