Garden Update

April 11th

Things are happening in the garden. Really, really good things. (And some bad. But mostly good!) Remember how I lost those plants to the mean dogs next door? Well, they did produce four small green tomatoes this week.

More importantly, I made my first batch of homegrown basil pesto this week and it was fantastic. And! The squash are happening!

And thank goodness Finny is on her way to Fenix because the same darn fungus that killed all of my squash in Golden last year is showing up on my leaves this year, 1100 miles south!

Any other gardeners seeing this? ARG. I will not use Monsanto-sponsored anything in this garden. Give me your best organic solutions please.

    I haven’t had this yet, but looks like you need to thin the plants: http://gardening.about.com/od/gardenproblems/a/PowderyMildew.htm

    Good luck!
