Summer Garden 2015 Update

Lots of goodies in the garden. We are still picking Cocozelle Zucchini, Yellow Summer Squash, Lacinato and Ruffled Kale, some tomatoes although they are not as prolific again this year.  I lost a lot to early blight or ?? San Marzano's have been very small this year.  Peppers are doing much better this year than last.  Also, the Japanese eggplants are going wild.  I pick around 20-40 a week off of the six plants. Amazing!!  I also have the Ronde de Nice Zucchini coming in now as I planted those only a month ago.  Some cucumbers are forming on the plants which I planted from seed around the same time as the Ronde de Nice.  String beans are starting to climb.  I have three Butterneck Squash plants that are forming small squash now.  They still have a ways to go since putting in so late.  I think as last year though that we will have a late summer and a mild winter.  Rains are in the forecast for this week again. What a treat for us Southern CA gardeners to have these summer rains.  Winter is expected to have El Nino and bring us lots of rain.  Keep those fingers crossed that it happens for us.
