This is our second succession of squash and cucumbers. The insect netting will hopefully protect the squash from an early squash bug attack. We’ll remove the covers at the very last second when they begin flowering.
Ladybugs at two different developmental stages on aphid patrol in the Eggplant crop. We have so many aphids on about half our eggplant crop, but with lots of ladybugs and a spraying of mineral oil we are hopeful the outbreak is somewhat contained.
