wow. this week is flying by :)

i also got my first zuke out of the garden...although you guys would have laughed at me if you saw me chasing the dreaded squash borers around (man, they are the lepers of the back forty), trying to catch them with my bare hands. i actually caught one for a sec, then he got away when i tried to 'squash' him.

i did resort to poison chemicals. either they won't work, or maybe i'll grow a couple of heads sometime in the future.

Those darn borers! They ruined my crop last year. Chuck caught and killed a few, but all it takes is one to do a bunch of damage. I hope your chemicals work. There are all sorts of weird remedies online, but we didn't try any. I think one involved beer...

Anyway, happy zuke!
