Time catches up with all good zucchinis. Mid-April it seems was time for Greenskin 2. You see, he got a bad case of powdery mildew with the shorter days, less sun and increased dampness.
The plant was still pretty healthy otherwise and still producing, but it is also time to make way for the winter crops - cabbages, cauli, broccoli, sprouts, leeks...
I picked the remaining fruit and flowers,
and gave Greenskin 2 to the chooky girls. They found the grass more appealing...a sad sight really isn't it?
Greenskin 3 is still going and I will keep him from the chooks for a little while longer.
How are your zucchinis? Sent to the chook house yet? What do you do to treat powdery mildew in your zucchinis?
