Tappy tomatoes I have gotten 3 ripe ones but since we had no rain then lots at a time then none

they have split so I picked a few large ones to ripen in my buddy's window

Stink bugs anyone?? https://en.m.wikiped...Green_stink_bug

they are plentyful this year its been so hot and dry some pests are outa ballance these are everywhere ut my hedge full of weeds and bushes like the lilac have them all over the seeds and the liliac seeds are not good for anything really so I will leave the pest alone on the weeds and herbs and bushes and such

white fly has eaten enough flower sap the leaves are all yellow and brown now maybe there will be a come back but all the dagga has damaged leaves so the crop size on the leaves ae done have to save more petals
what was this plant good for other then a smoking mixture?? ... i think i remember colds and flu

i have so many zuchinni that i have forgotten to take all thier pictures oops but anyway there is so many ive been giving lots away and frezing some and making muffins adding it to soup grated and cooked with carrts like this too is good :)
i gonna try a few more things s

any ideas for zuchinni?

sorry its blurry I cannot find the kids and pets setting yet??

 

gallery_121976_1456_144641.jpg

The stink bug has started on the tomatoes leaving yellow leaves and fruit that has white spots in the plum tomatoes.... I will leave a marigold mulch around the tomatoes and see what this does.....stink bugs are not on the marigold plants :) insect repellent plant :)

Hey WildE, when we have extra zucchini here we treat them like cucumbers and make relish, or bread and butter pickles out of them.   Zucc's are mild enough in flavor that you cant tell with the finished product. 

 

I've had family, and friends not be able to tell the difference between them and cucumber relish once its properly spiced and canned.  And on that note, zucchini are easier to grow here then cucumbers.

great ideas Juthro .... this is the first year cucumbers are doing well :) but the zuchiini always do well where i am too
I just pulled the big one outa the garden hubby had to carry it in ...the big ones im gonna great up for bread well muffins gluten free ;)

there are ones that are really thick and they work well cut up for lazagna they fit in the pan.....you gota get most of the water cooked out befor cooking in the oven tho so im gonna freze slices on a cookie sheet and line them all in wax paper so i can seperate them after frezing ....that might do the trick to get the water out ....defrost befor use all the water should run outa the peeices and they be ready to put in the oven :) this way I dont have to fry the water outa them cutting down prep time :) Im all for that

Great garden wildedibles... Stunning, thanks for sharing. I usually end up with only a few zucchini plants because how much they produce... although last year I had a serious squash bug problem caught to late. I rotated them out this year. Kind of missing them now ha. They made great baby food for those coming off of milk and my kids loved them.
