As a Last Resort Plant Zucchini garden looks pretty crummy this year. Even though we began brightly we're not making a whole lot of progress.

I think it's due to the long series of cool nights early this spring. None of the early plantings look splendiferous. Those things that usually come easy, such as onions and radishes and greens, all look a mite feeble. As if they're anemic. And Ms. Rabbit doesn't help at all! Ms. Rabbit, who lives in the neighbor's yard and who totally neglects the neighbor's gorgeous crop of lettuce, feasts on my beets.

I've spent most of my 'garden time' cleaning the flower beds. Now it's time to look again at the two small raised beds of veggies. And do something about them! Maybe I'll plant some more beet seed. Or more radishes. Or maybe just give in and plant zucchini.

Zucchini grows anywhere, anytime, all the time! Right!!!?

Aww. I'm sorry things are fizzling. That's always such a disappointment.

I know I shouldn't revel in this, but our outside dogs took care of the rabbit that was invading our little garden spot.

My last resort was more beans!!!!! My zuchinni and yellow squash gave me nothing, and I finally pulled the sorry looking things out and gave them a decent burial in the compost heap! I always heard zuchinni was sooooooo easy to grow. . ... not here!!!!
