After everything that happened to the garlic this year, I still harvested about 15 medium sized bulbs. Since I had been prepared for none it seems to have worked out. Of course it could have been more than 30 large bulbs plus a few dozen scapes, but who’s counting.
The squash plants are already looking a lot healthier, so now it is time to begin looking for the bugs. This means turning over each leaf in search of little black eggs in a tight pattern every other day. As time progresses, it will also require plucking live bugs off the plants and dropping them in a bowl of soapy water. The first inspection yielded none, but when it happens there will be photos to explain better. This year, I will get a squash harvest.
