That looks like a good size for Early Girl, Begreen, and such a lovely shade of red.
Our cucumbers have some healthy new growth at the tops and are setting some good fruit, but I think it’s only a matter of time before the powdery mildew does them in, especially now that the high heat is adding additional stress. The past two days have been 96, today 98, all with bright sun. It makes me wilt.
We had zucchini in our dinner tonight, and now the children think we need to grow that, too. I’ve got about a month before planting time, so I can consider it.
One of our blueberry bushes may be a goner. Part of it had died earlier this year, and I pruned it away. The rest had been looking pretty good, but I had noticed some reddening at the base of some leaves recently. All of a sudden tonight it looked wilted after the sun was off of it. (It seemed fine during the afternoon.) When the other part of the plant died, it was likewise very sudden, so I wouldn’t be surprised to find this one gone by morning. I admit that I’m pretty sad about it. I hope it’s nothing that will spread to my other varieties.
