The SVB's have arrived
It looks like the SVB's have invaded the Spaghetti Squash plants at the home garden. When the weather was "normal", I was doing a good job of inspecting them every couple of days for eggs and removing anything that I thought was an egg. However, once the oppressive heat set in and the plants got really big, I stopped inspecting the plants. So, I have no one to blame except for myself and of course that menopausal "Mother Nature"!
I have only found damage in a few spots so far. I'm sure that they will take over the vines in a short period of time.
Not all is lost!!! I have three really nice size squash on the vines that are starting to turn!
Although I was shooting for 6....I'm in no way complaing at all! Last year I didn't get a single one!
