We were having our tea in our backyard in the afternoon, I saw a pair of praying mantis mating, a cicada flying by and making noise, a humming bird enjoy and rest on a humming bird feeder, squirrel was moving her young one by one from old nest to new warm nest back and forth. And I, I enjoyed tea and harvested some garden vegetables!
黃色夏南瓜收種了Get seeds from my yellow zucchini
This zucchini was growing since July 20…so it was time to pick and get seeds for next year growing use. This plant had more than 20 zucchini so far and still counting. As you can see, there are around 200 seeds from this zucchini. I don’t have space for so many plus I am not going to grow so many. Any one want to trade/exchange your different produce seeds for my yellow zucchini seeds?
這條黃色夏南瓜從7月20日長到現在,是時候切下取種子留著明年種了. 目前收了超過20條瓜而且還在長. 你可以看到這條約取出200顆的成熟種子. 沒有足夠的地加上也不想種太多棵. 有人想要交換我家的夏南瓜種子嗎?
More produce! 繼續採收
Thorn less black berries, small tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow zucchini, colorful Swiss chards, baby carrots. They are very good!無刺黑莓,小蕃茄,大黃瓜,黃色夏南瓜,彩色瑞士菾菜,和小紅蘿蔔. 都很好吃!
More planting area, more cherry tomatoes and yellow zucchini!
So far I have harvested over 12 yellow zucchini in one giant plant! Lots of small yummy tomatoes and green leafy veggies. The shallow planter will be used to plant annual herbs with shallow roots next year, such as sweet basil and coriander.
More garden harvest! 庭園採收樂
More zucchini, cherry radishes and cherry tomatoes from veggie planters!

Yellow Zucchini Experiment 黃色夏南瓜授粉實驗
Purpose of this experiment: Can I save male flower pollen when I don’t have female flower ready yet?
As picture shown: 5/29 + 6/10 same plant male flower pollen, use Q-tip to swab and store in small re-sealable bag then store in freezer. This morning pollinated a same plant female flower and then cover female flower with clear plastic bag. In three days, this female flower will wilt and come off then we will know the result.
Fast growing, those tiny flower buds are visible now…
