Baby Update 8/7/09

Welcome June from Four Green Acres. Thanks for following my blog! June has the most beautifully written blog profile!

Garden Overview
No weeds in the garden... which I have to say has been such pure delight!!! But all around is a problem and... that is what I would be dealing with in a tradition garden. The weeds are just ferocious here in Wyoming!
Baby Watermelon... but the vine has vine borer... any ideas on what to do?
Grow little cuke... grow...
Another baby watermelon on a different vine
Bush beans... fall crop with their 1st two leaves


  1. Toni, your babies are soooo cute. But, with vegetables we don't want them to stay that size!!
    Your garden looks great. If that is sand or gravel between the beds (like my MI soil), you can just use the back of an iron rake once a week to scrape them like a charm!
    Hope you're having a great weekend,

  2. Split the vine to get out the nastie. Hill it and hope it will root elsewhere along the stem.

  3. Borer on watermelon vine? That's so unusual, but it is in the cucurbit family. Ribbit is spot on, and maybe you can save it.

  4. Oh, so sweet! I have a bunch of those little cucumbers too. I'm beginning to consider gherkins!

    Thanks so much for welcoming me to the blog and saying such nice things about my profile. It is a pleasure to be here. Your blog just bursts with good growing things and great advice.

  5. June-you're welcome! Thank you for your kind words.
