July 8, Bekah's Tomato Garden
We outwitted early hatching squash/cucumber bugs by keeping those plants covered with netting until last week when the flowers appeared on our squash, cuke and pumpkin plants. This week the cucumber beetles arrived. From where I have no idea, but they sure found our garden - just after the weird tortoise beetles camped out on the tomato plants. We're handpicking both and so far, so good. The mystery squashes (we think they're butternut but it's too early to tell yet) Anya planted at her library story hour are starting to climb out of the box and clamber onto the trellis I built last year.
