Never had luck with zucchini
Picked half dozen squash, okra and peppers. Maters I've got maybe another dozen ready but I'm gonna give them a few more days hopefully. I saw two mater branches on the ground and figured the pups from next door were in there again........there was a grey feather on one of em and now think it was a bird. Musta been from this morn and there was a mater that looks like it was pecked pretty good. Didnt know birds ate on em. I left it thinking they may just continue to eat on that one and not endulge on others.
I water one row by hand now and use the sprinkler for the rest, while doing by hand I heard a noise behind me and turned around and that pit mix dog was 10 yards behind me. I hollered for Daisy and picked up a tire iron I've been keeping just for this pest. When I raised my arm it halfway lunged then started to go toward a hedgerow closer to me, I picked up a good throwing piece of cinder and and missed him.
