My garden looks like 10 pounds of shit in a five pound bag. I skipped on the Bonnie plants this year and bought everything at Chiereks nursery. And needless to say everything is growing much better then in the past.
Tomatoe plants are enormous

As well as the summer squash

Jalapeño, banana peppers and cucumber are producing more then we can keep up with already

Anyone have experience w dying emerald green arborvitae?

This awesome natural screen to all my crap in backyard is bout 15 yrs old.....and i have 1 dying off...and the one next to it may have caught the bug too!

The only thing that has ever changed is this spring I wrapped some of the stems together with an aluminum wire, because winter winds blew that one hard. I did the same to the one on the right....but no issues w that one ( I have since removed wire on both)  Strangely enough, the backside of the shrub still has green on it.....so there is something going on w the photosynthesis process in the front....but not the back!

The one on left has some brown tinge too. That one has had a copper wire for 5 yrs holding up a pole for trampoline lights....never any issues til the one next to it started dying this spring. 

I need to save these....cuz if my wife sees all the crap I have back there....she will buy me a Sanford n Son shirt for my birthday!!!

A few mountain magic tomatoes are ready to be picked. I'll let my kids attack em. My cayennes pepper plants are loaded and a few are starting to turn red. Also have a good amount of cherry tomatoes starting to turn red.

Hey Ken - what do you do to preserve your zucchini for long term storage?

Look for webbing or other disease causing bugs or crap on it and ask at a garden center what to spray them with.  They will probably already know if it's spreading in the area.

Cube them up, vacuum pack and freeze. They get soft after a while but I use them for soup and zucchini bread so it doesn't really matter.

Can you shred them up, vacuum pack, and freeze if you're planning on making zucchini bread?
