What happened to this squash and watermelon?

Some of our summer squash and watermelon have split open!

We didn’t know why this happened, so we looked it up. Fruits and vegetables don’t like it when the weather changes a lot. Remember when it was really hot and dry a couple of weeks ago? And then it cooled down and got rainy? Well, those changes had a big impact on the produce that was trying to grow. The sudden changes caused them to burst!

Luckily there are lots more things that are still growing just fine. Come see our garden soon!
