Tonight I decided to pull one of my zucchini plants and replant the bed with eggplant and jalapeno peppers. The zucchini plant was still growing, but its stem was pretty hollowed out from squash vine borers. I picked the remaining two zukes on the plant and then out it went.
I refurbished the bed with a bag of cow manure and a bag of mushroom compost that I picked up at Lowes. I also bought the plants there: 2 Black Beauty Eggplants, 2 Regular Jalapenos, and 2 No Heat Jalapenos. The plants were three bucks a piece and it made me appreciate how much I prefer planting from seeds. Maybe next year I will be able to seed my own plants indoors. After working the soil I covered with black weed fabric and planted everything. I hope the plants do well.
