Squash Tatume: Harvest number 2!
Monday, 14 Feb 11 Overcast 25°C / 77°F
The scourge of powdery mildew.
Something had to give and it’s a draw between these and the cucumbers. Powdery mildew has bought them to their knees, this one in particular. There are a couple more on the plant but I thought I’d harvest this one and try it out later on in the week.
It’s been a particularly wet season so it’s no real surprise that the mildew got them, but they don’t seem as robust as the zucchinis are against the white powder. They succumbed quickly.

- Argh, she was quicker than me, plus she had a knife.
