Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 6/24/13

I have to admit, my garden isn’t looking as pretty as I’d like. Specifically, I’m having trouble with my cucurbits and tomatoes. With all the rain we’ve had, on top of the typical Charleston humidity, I’m fighting to keep my plants alive. The tomatoes have Septoria Leaf Spot. Most of my squash and all my pumpkins were assassinated by squash borers. And my cucumbers are fighting mildew of some sort, and it’s spreading to my casaba melons. I’m harvesting good cucumbers and tomatoes, but I’m fighting to keep the plants alive. See the good and the bad!
