Dead Squash Plants

I put all my plants into the ground a few weeks ago and a few things (primarily squash plants) have died. Both zucchini plants are gone, one of my two luffa is barely hanging on, some of the pumpkins have died, and the melons aren't doing great. I need to get rid of the bugs before they kill anything else!

The plants that are doing really well are the tomatoes! They are getting so big that I need to start pruning and training them so they don't take over! My peppers aren't doing as well, but they are hanging in there.

The flowers I am growing are also doing well. Not many of the sunflower seeds have sprouted/lasted this long, but the ones that have are getting big! The milkweed I moved from my raised beds are growing both where I moved them and where I left bits of roots! My St. Patrick's Day sweet peas are blooming and getting very tall; I need to get them a trellis!

My survivor strawberry plants are now making babies! Only the two new plant produced any fruit, but the other plants had lots of stress so I wasn't surprised. And my garlic is ready to harvest! This little bulb and it's babies were popping out of the soil the other day.

You can see lots more photos of these plants along with not-dead-squash and other plants in my garden 2016 album on flickr. How is your garden growing?
