  • Yup, that's what I said it was in the original post... Evening Primrose. 8D

    I harvested 4 zukes in 2 days, squash are loaded, but the fruits are small and wrinkly... do I need to just wait, or is something wrong with them? Some of my smaller zukes are succomed to blossom end rot type of yuck. And my volunteer watermelons that I thought sprung up from where I tossed watermelon scraps last fall? Turns out they were acorn squash, from where I tossed out acorn squash scraps last fall, ha ha! Cukes are in full bloom, and Romas have lots of tomatoes. I'm having a great time with my weed patch this year :D

  • Garden on the Square has some little elves that watered last week. Can always use more.

  • I THOUGHT I saw elf footprints! Thanks for helping me think I was not crazy. :-)

    Flowering mainly in the evening might be why Sandy does not see them much. I think she checks in early like me. :-)

    craftin_mom are the zukes still tiny when they succumb? I think they and the cukes might not be getting pollinated well. I have a number of undeveloped fruit that just shrivel and die. I am just lacking the insects! A least the GOOD ones.

  • Yes, yes! Your very smart daughter is correct! We saw the different varities of primroses but they didn't include a picture on the "stemless" one. See everyone was on the right track.

  • You sound a little biased towards her Donkey Lady. Almost like a proud teacher. :-) In case I don't brag on her at the meeting, she graduated *** laude last month.

    Hope to see you Friday.

  • Congratulations!

    Are we going to have to worry about frost this weekend? ;>

    I've missed getting out lately due to moving.

    (I'm not apt to make this meeting,either.)

    But,my new digs has flowers (and gardeners) everywhere.

    I hope to create a good patio garden with container plants and the like.

    (O.K.,found my gardening tools. Now,where are my raincoat,red hats,scissors,concrete critters, and cake pans?

  • Hey, sounds lie you have moved to a fun place. Can't wait to hear about it when you get a chance. Flowers and gardeners everywhere? Sounds intriguing.

  • Oops, "sounds like" not sounds lie. Spell checkers can only do so much. :-)
