2. The ear was ready to pick.

  3. The color or the insect damage scarring?

  4. looks kind of like Redroot pigweed.

  5. I picked these up, already growing, at a greenhouse. The tag said zucchini, leaves looked like zucchini.

  6. Its a Cucurbita pepo gourd type.

  7. I thought cucurbita pepo was a general name for a variety of different gourds (like zucchini, pumpkin, squash) not a specific variety. Am I mistaken?

  8. Cucurbita pepo is the scientific name.

  9. Blossom end due to lack of calcium at the growing point. Usually cause by irregular watering. Remove the fruit.

  10. Look closer it might be Gummy stem blight.

  11. Bindweed will win. It always does.

  12. Newbie gardener, and first run w summer squash.

  13. Watch for the females flowers to bloom. The fruit are ready to harvest 2-3 days later.

  14. Looks like one vine got hit with an herbicide.

  15. The seeds are not mature. Likely they will not germinate well.

  16. The key with sweet corn is the angle of the ear to the stalk. They start out right next to the stalk and then drop down as they mature.

  17. Nice! Great example of a tromboncino squash - an Italian variety of Cucurbita moschata, in the butternut-pumpkin group. It's in the butternut squash family. You can eat these like a zucchini when they're still green and soft-skinned. If you leave them on the vine long enough, the skin will eventually turn hard and orange-brown, like a butternut squash (closely related).

  18. If you let them mature, they look like a giant long necked butternut squash.

  19. Looks like a zipper. Just need to unzip the mater now and enjoy

  20. When I left 23 years ago, Mormons were a weird group that nobody really thought about. They were the annoying kids on bikes in white shirts and ties. They were the ones that paid for those cheesy ad's on TV all the time. All that most people knew about them was they had more than one wife.

  21. I have nicely asked them to remove me from the chat. They are pretty persistent though so we will see what happens.

  22. Great start! I have a lot of this in my home garden. We get a few days of frost mid February. So we can do most spring crops in the fall but no true tropicals unless they can be in pots.

  23. Tomatoes, sweet peppers, onions, cucumbers and carrots seem to be everywhere.

  24. Rather new to this and curious how those lines around the tomatoes are formed.

  25. It depends on the genetics. Wild type cucumbers are usually bitter. The bitterness is an attempt to keep animals and pest from eating the immature fruit (it actually attracts cucumber beetles).

  26. I hated my mission for all the normal reasons (depression, suicidal thoughts, exhaustion, untreated physical injuries, asshole MP and GA's) plus some extra terrorist bombings tossed in (IRA).

  27. The only thing you need to use is #2. The grow big fertilizer. It's the most properly formulated out of the group. It also contains micronutrients. It contains too much phosphate however. About 2x what is needed.

  28. No it's not a hybrid. Show a picture of the plant. I am guessing the plant has caught a virus like ZYMV.

  29. This is a scam based upon a misrepresentation of commercial greenhouse practices.
