Something's Bugging Me
Actually something is bugging my garden. First came the moths, then came the little green worms who are devouring everything in sight. They started with the melons, the Cucumber, Mexican Mellon, and Sun Jewel Melon, and that was OK, cause they were about done anyway. Then they headed to the Yellow Crookneck Squash, skelotonizing every leaf in sight. And that was OK, too, cause I was about done with them. And that was all in the space of a couple of weeks. But now they must be stopped before they set their sights on the Cabbage, Mustard Greens, Kale, etc. Fortunately a cool front arrives tonight which should slow them down. Next, I'll move in with an organic insecticide, like BT, to finish them off. One thing for sure is you can't take your eyes off of a southern garden for long, or the insects will pick it up and carry it away. Kind of reminds my of a Borg episode on Star Trek.
