Squash Control

We haven’t had rain for at least three weeks, and some plants are clearly struggling. But the heat and our occasional watering seems to have done wonders for others. I swear this pattypan squash was half the size before these last two days in the upper 90s! It weighed 1 1/2 pounds when we picked it tonight. Time to become more vigilant because there are lots of zucchini flowers that can easily turn into baseball bats.

This is what’s in store from the tomato plants (and there is plenty of green fruit now):

Here are some other pictures from before the lack of rain (all those 75% chance of thunderstorms that never materialized) became so obvious:
