With that image I have now had the most successful harvest ever of squash.
But hey, it is a small victory and with the way things are going this year I am going to be that coworker unloading bags of it on everyone.
The bugs that have always decimated the plants are nowhere to be seen. Every day I check every plant, but no visitors yet. I think it may help that I turn the leaves while watering which may be knocking off any egg clusters before they are big enough to see. I also planted late again this year which may have helped. Anyway if they show, then they will go to the pest cemetery.
The tomatoes are still producing well, but the high heat came early this year (as I suspected). Even with watering in the morning and evening, there will probably only be one more good harvest before they die off. Still the crop has been a big one this year and the new heirlooms did well enough to justify a planting next year.
