Photo of the Day #25

IMG_0550Spaghetti squash plant. Sadly, squash borers have hit us hard this year. We’ll be lucky to get a couple squashes. Our zucchini and pumpkins are really struggling as well.

Gardens rarely look like the magazines. (Really, does anything look like in the magazines?)

Next year, we’ll have to develop a strategy to protect our squashes.

Have you ever had problems with squash borers? Recommend any good remedies?

    We were hit so hard last year we just didn’t bother with it this year. I can tell you one thing, planting marigolds around the squash doesn’t work well. It stopped everything that DOESN’T bother squash.
