The poor zucchini plants lost it's battle with the scorching heat and lack of rain. We pulled 2 plants today and tossed them into the composter. I was actually pretty sad, really sad to have to pull these plants, since there were little baby zucchinis growing on it. I was hoping the plants would pull through, and was hoping for more zucchini this year. I didn't quite get the overload of zucchini that I was wishing for. But the poor thing was so wilted and the leaves had turned brown, and the vine snapped off the roots. We still have 2 more plants in the ground, but they look like they are also knocking on death's door. Ugh! See you next year my dear summer squash!
