Our Vegetable garden has been a sad sight this year. The tomatoes got some sort of bacterial wilt. The plants are puny, the leaves are wilted and most of the tomatoes didn't make it. Apparently the bacteria stops the water from coming up the stem and making it to the leaves or fruit. So sad. This is my bounty this year. At least they taste good. Just to be clear that bowl is not a bowl, but a tiny ramekin and those are my 14 grape tomatoes for the season.
Our cucumbers were flourishing, seemingly unscathed by the bacteria that was killing the tomatoes. I was inspecting them the other day and, I'm no master gardener, but I'm pretty sure that my cucumbers aren't cucumbers. I have about 4 of these big round ball veggies growing. What is this, people? Squash? Watermelon? (it is "hanging" only because I have the vine running up a tomato cage to save space in the garden) Guess I'll find out soon.
