Yes they are. Have you been getting much of a harvest yet?

I got mine in so late that I doubt I'll get a big harvest, but I put enough in to get a decent one if fall doesn't arrive too early like it has the past couple of years. My zuch was planted real late, but I've had a couple off of it already. Moles keep undoing my attempts at getting more lettuce going.

Eat well!

There are two zucchini and two tomato plants that extend about 12’ counting the overhang. I have picked between 40# to 50# of zucchini, the tomatoes are a late variety and just started to get ripe last week. They are growing in 100% compost I also added a 40# bag of composted cow manure to each Bed.

That's a lot of zucchini! Didn't anyone tell you to only plant one? :wink: I knew of someone who planted a row of them when they did their first garden. The soup kitchens got a lot!

A lot of trees and other plants in forests start their life in compost, so there's no argument against growing your vegies the same way as far as I'm concerned.

Did you check the tomatoes on the web site I linked you to in your other post?

Keep on setting good examples!

Just AWSOME!

I'm getting toms & cucs from the green house but no plants that size. I prune the tops after they get over 6', the small fruit don't have time to grow & get ripe here.
Getting zucs also but not that many.
According to the weather record keepers, coldest summer on record in 70 years. Only 3 days over 70 so far & been mostly cloudy with lots rain. :(

John, you may be setting records.
Again just "AWSOME"
