Tromboncino Zucchini trial fail

CLBlakeyMay 18, 2013

I planted 9 tromboncino seeds 4 sprouted about a week ago. Today was their first day outside it was nice and no wind, all 4 died. Funeral will be held in the morning. Maybe next year. :(

Lol! I haven't put my cucs out yet....or my tomatoes.....or my squash. I'm scared I'm going to be overrun with vegies this year. :)

How's the weather up there?

I'm planting my garden this week end. Even potatoes haven't gone in yet. Also have to do something with the tomatoes.

I have been putting my plants outside each day for the sun except on windy days. It has been very nice and sunny but last week was windy. Forecast is for 60 % chance rain this coming week we rarely get rain. It would be nice to get some free water though.

Tromboncino Eulogy

Little plant bright and green
first Tromboncino I have ever seen
much water you did need
to make you sprout from a little seed

Outside I put you for a day
so in the sun with friends could sway
Who could know this fateful day
would be the one to end your way.

Next year I'll try again
and maybe then it'll end my pain
hoping from David's trials we'll gain
trusty knowledge to keep us sane.

So good-bye little plant
this ends my chant.

Lol! That is cute, Cindy. The trials and tribulations of gardening! On the right side, it could have been an $80 peony! :)

LOL Cute!!

Most of my peonies haven't shown up yet either, except for little "Mollis", which is always very early. Patience!

It could be the very common Sara Bernhardt, in which case, she likes to sleep in! I have 3 or 4 of Her Majesty and I don't think any have roused yet. :) Maybe I should pour a cup of coffee on her.....lol
