harvest

This week’s newsletter from a local farm says that they are having an unprecedented summer squash and cucumber glut! Great. Its perfect weather for these.

They also say their melons, eggplant and corn are also doing great in this weather and are looking forward to good harvests of these. Me too!

But the hot weather hasn’t been good for lettuce and fall plantings of broccoli-related crops. Same here. I hope my recently sowed fall broccoli and lettuces will sprout.

  • For the last few days when I load your page it goes completely white after a few seconds. Seems kind of strange.

    Have you magical powers! Our Summer has been whacky so far. I am taken back by the summer squash etc that you have. Although our Broccoli has been in since April, the poor weather has slowed everything down. Well done you, such lovely crunchy veg and flavours!

  • Everything grows great at my community plot. I'm a bit embarrassed by th wimpy tomatoes I'm growing at home. Oh well. The squashes are yummy.

    Dan, I'm not having any trouble. I wonder if others are?

  • Not sure. It says 'waiting for b.scorecardresearch.com…' at the bottom bar on firefox. If I hit stop it doesn't do it.

  • I'm also having the same problem as Dan- with the page seemingly not loading.

  • Wonderful squash! Mine never came in. Not sure if it was shaded too much or that it wasn't pollenated well, but I did not get one. Got lots of male flowers and a few female flowers, but they just never got together.

  • Dan and Chris,

    It maybe one of my sidebar widgets. I find that some that I added a couple years ago aren't working anymore. I will see what I can do to remove some that are hanging up occasionally for me. Maybe I can figure out which one is the scorecard you mention.

  • OK I removed some of the old and broken widgets. But if there's still a loading problem, it would help if you can tell me the last (lowest) correctly loaded item on my sidebar. This will help me figure out what's not loading. On my computer, everything is loading quickly (2-3 seconds til the white background goes away).

  • hi Kathy,

    I am still having the problem of white screen.

    I rush to click on stop before it goes blank.

  • It is saying "google analytics" is loading and just pauses with a white window.

    The problem still exists.

  • great harvest!

  • OK

    I deleted a bunch of widgets. I have no idea which one uses google analytics or scorecard research.

    Any improvement?

  • I'm envious of those squash too. My yellow crookneck that started out with beautiful large leaves and lots of squash developed white spots all over the leaves. I cut the diseased leaves and threw them in the trash (not compost!) but then it spread to the rest of the leaves, stems, and fruits anyway. Had to dig our out and dispose of the whole thing this morning. What a bummer!! I have no idea what is was but it developed in the humidity we've had in Connecticut the past weeks.
