Today I put up five jars of peach jam (peaches from my neighbor, Pat), six jars of dill pickle relish (yuk!) for Mr. H, and seven jars of pizza sauce.
I've been meaning to update you on the sick zucchini plant. I sprayed it with cornmeal tea and gave it a double dose of fish emulsion, and it's looking fine now. I even got a zucchini from it yesterday. I still think I had infected seeds, as my neighbor planted two hills from the same package and hers looked bad, too. She sprayed hers with a commercial fungicide, and used the fish emulsion, but hers still look awful. In the meantime, just 30 days ago, I planted another variety of zucchini. They're not only blooming, they have at least four zucchinis on them already!
This was supposed to be our last day of 100 degree weather. The forecast is for temperatures in the high nineties for two days, and then a plunge into the mid to high eighties! It will be wonderful to be able to get out to the garden again......without passing out from the heat!
