First 2011 Squash

Written by Chris on April 30th, 2011

First Earthbox squash picked today. Black Beauty zucchini weighing in at 280g. I fear my squash may not be long for this world, however, as the other day I spotted the dreaded squash vine borer moth buzzing around the plants, depositing its eggs of death all over the squash stems. I tried to scrape off the eggs I did see, but I will not be surprised to see my squash shriveling up in a matter of weeks.

5/1 update–picked one more black beauty 169g and first dixie yellow at 190g.
