Multipik

Friday, October 16th, 2009

The yellow “Multipik” squash is doing quite well in the Earthbox. Actually all four varieties of squash I planted in the Earthbox are doing well, but Multipik is leading the pack in terms of numbers of squash. Eight ball is leading the pack in terms of weight (although I think I’m letting them get a bit large before harvesting). I’ll publish full harvest stats at the end of the season.

Something found one of the 8 Ball squashes. We’ll find out tonight if it’s still in there when I start dicing the squash up for dinner! Bon Appétit!

Tomato Problems

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

My fall tomatoes have never taken off. In fact, they look downright awful. Looks like some kind of fungus or something has gotten them. Would appreciate any input on what could be going on.

I did manage to harvest a few thus far. Enough for a couple of nibbles.

Massive fall tomato harvest!
