Some of my unpollinated female zucchinis are so large that I think we're going to eat them anyway. If I would have left these on the plant, they would have shriveled up and rotted. (There have been absolutely NO males, and none of my neighbors garden...)
Anyone else ever eat these? I'll let you know if they're awful!
The yellow squash buds are nearly as big, so those got thrown to the compost pile. Here's Arphaxad checking them out.
In other news, my slug catching is going great. I've even gotten to feed the extra ones hanging out around the rim to the turtles... I'll spare the full on photo, because frankly, it's pretty gross.
The weather here has been in the 90's for the past week, and is going to continue to be in the 90s for at least the next ten days according to weather.com, so I'm hoping my tomatoes still pollinate! There have been some cooler nights, but this morning, when I went out to water at 6 am, it was already 80.
Here are a few that HAVE pollinated! Here's a roma, which are loading themselves up, and I no longer feel bad showing my Celebrity (nursery start) tomato, now that one of my babies that I planted has a tomato.
