RIP Squash

Well, my squash plants have officially bit the dust. 
I guess with the frequent waterings, the soil level went down enough that the stems were exposed.  Before I realized what was happening, the stems were soft and rotten.  I blame the abundance of leaves for my misfortune!  But I can't say I'm that upset, I got some crazy zucchinis off this plant and I'm really sick of watering it, anyway.  Frankly, I'm tired of super heat, swarms of mosquitos and eyebrow sweat in general.  Are you with me?

My peppers want to be friends with your squash plants. Although they might have actually made it if they didn't get completely crushed by my ginormous tomato plants! lol

We're on our 7th heat wave of the summer! I've been gardening for 5 years and my plants are struggling with all this heat. I feel your pain.

My plum tomatoes never did get right...

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

Yes - I'm totally over the heat and humidity. I'm hoping fall comes soon.

Jenny @ Anything Pretty said...

I am so with you.....just plain sick of watering and the heat. Bring on fall!

Dianna said...

My flowers are over the heat too. They are starting to show signs of dieing off. Fall is right around the corner.

This has been a really sweaty summer, yuck! I'm done watering too. So glad most of the gardens can hold on and not be watered like crazy like last year.

I dry humped by air conditioner for 1/2 hour last night when I got home from work.

Totally with you on the heat/humidity! But woe - I live in Florida! It'll be cool-ish in November, I guess.
