I was glad to find that my zucchini was still growing when I got home yesterday. The weather feels as though it's getting a bit chilly and the temperature is only getting up to the high 50's tomorrow. I think I'll place some fabric row cover on my zucchini plants for the next couple of days to keep them more comfortable. Today, I noticed that there are now several tiny female flowers developing on all four of my plants. Hopefully, there is still enough time left before our first frost for them to mature.
Stir-fried Noodles with Shrimp, Homegrown Tatsoi and BeetsLast Friday, I mentioned that I harvested one of my beets, which had been assaulted by one of our wild four-legged friends. Last night, I decided to make some quick stir-fired noodles with homegrown tatsoi, beets and beet greens. The young beet tasted delicious, earthy and sweet like any good beet should. I am very excited to begin harvesting the rest of them soon.
