Hi All,

My 08-04-2018 harvest:
https://ibb.co/gt07Qp

From top right to bottom left
9 Ron-de-nice Zukes
rosemary
7 golden zukes
potato onions
purslane
2 anaheim peppers
cherry tomatoes
2 ichiebon eggplant

I made Ratatouille. The peppers were the magic ingredient.

Am I now officially upgraded from a black thumb to
a grey thumb?

I sincerely appreciate all the help you guys gave me in
getting to this point.

Next year, I grow less zukes. My freezer is filling up!
(I will have to cope!)

-T

you're in an arid climate, i'd say dusty gray is
likely a suitable color...

water, organic matter, cover crops, worms, windbreaks,
partial shade, swales, chop and drop, etc.

I fertilized the hell out of the things this year.
Spent about 120 U$D on organic chicken poop based
fertilizer from Wally World. I wonder if I will
make it back?

we're still picking gobs of cucumbers and a
few people still want them so we've not pulled
out the plants. i wanted to do that about a
month ago...

i think we're at about 11 buckets beyond
what i already put up.

We often just cut them into 3/8" disks, fry in olive oil until the brown a
bit (be patient) then hit them with salt and pepper with some grated parm.

We take turns cutting them in half and leaving the other half slice to the
other person, frying pan after frying pan etc.

YUM!

Ronde-de-nice are shaped like small pumpkins. I am
looking forward to cutting up from five inch steaks
and frying them up!

After all, the definition of a small town is that you
have to lock your car doors or you will find your back
seat filled with zucchini!

:-)

I tried giving some to my neighbor on Saturday, but no one
was home and I thought it would be a bit tacky just to leave
them on his from door step.
