First Zucchini!

I hand pollinated the flowers last week and now I have a Zucchini! How exciting! It grew so fast. We can't wait to taste.

I have 2 Zucchini plants given to me by a co-worker. They started slow, we don't have any zucchini yet but there have been some flowers. All we need now is some bees/insects to pollinate. May be I will try hand pollination to see if it works. I also saw a cutworm when the plants were small so I surrounded the plants with foil. I read that in one of the blogs that it confuses them and they leave the plant alone. Hopefully we'll get some Zucchinis soon.

Hi there!

I created my garden blog today. Have a bunch of plants in our small backyard. I will be posting updates on how they are doing. It should be interesting to look back in the coming years. Happy Gardening!

Leaving with some picture we took at the LA Arboretum a few weeks ago.
