Trouble on the winter squash front!
First, I've got -- surprise! -- mildew, after this wet June.* And one the squash that just sprouted, too. Looks like the same kind I had last year, and every year, except it hit the plants as soon as they came out of the ground.
So, I sprayed them with milk last night, like last year. Fertilized them, too, on the theory that they need to be strong to resist, and thinned them out. No results yet, but we can hope....
Also, this year something new! Little beetles are eating the succulent undersides of the leaves.
On the other hand, the tomatoes, so far, are doing fine.
And the beans are growing. Do I need to train them up the poles, or do they figure out how to do that all on their own?
NOTE Just don't golf t this one, mkay?
