The monster is back!

Dead zuchinni

I really did think the zucchini was a goner.  The powdery mildew had taken over, the lady beetles were working hard, but the mildew was winning.  Sigh.  So I cut off all of the powdery leaves, sprayed the lot with a milk treatment  (I tried the bicarb treatment, accidentally mixed it at double strength and half fried the plant… I will stick with milk now)  anyway I crossed my fingers and hoped it wouldn’t die.  

Mildew and lady bugs

Alas it did not.  It has come back!

So I am going to give a little plug to my now most favourite variety of zucchini ‘Fordhook.’  The seeds are available from Eden seeds.
