For myself, I opted for more cukes and basil and pulled the zukes. Working close to 70 hours a week right now between the day job and the private practice. If it can't get by with watering, fertilizing every 2-4 weeks, and an occasional application of either neem oil or insecticidal soap, then it will have to die or be pulled up if the pests might jeapardize future crops if allowed to propagate on the host plant.

Between the time I left for work this morning and when I got home tonight a large (6"x4" patch of a bright yellow fungus/mold has appeared on the soil immediately adjacent to my slicing tomato plant, which got a quick ground shower this morning to tide it over until I could get home tonight to water well. Think I'll go see what Google turns up. (lots of interesting fungus, molds and mushrooms on this lot.)
