I went out into the garage this morning and hubby helped me cut some kind of a bendable pipe. Don't ask me what kind. I'm clueless. It was here when we moved in. It was just long enough that it would make 2 arches. I put them on each end of the zucchini and a straight sturdy stake in the middle. Now I'll find an old queen or king-size sheet to use as a cover and I'll put that on each afternoon while it's still warm and take it off each morning. I'm hoping that will give the zucchini plants enough heat through the night that they will finish growing. It may not work but I don't want to buy anything for just three plants. I've got 5 or 6 zucchinis that are about 3 or 4 inches long and I would like to see them make it before it frosts though.
After that I went out to the herb garden and cut some lemon balm and some applemint, picked 3 figs and checked on my roselle which is forming lots of little buds. Oh, I am so excited about that!! Check out my Pictures Page if your interest is peaked for an informative picture.
