Garden Pests

Fer cryin' out loud.  First it was cucumber beetles.  Now it is Squash Bugs.  Look at the little bastards.  They are sucking the life out of my zucchinis.
I will  head out in the morning (now that I've done some research) and spray with  insecticidal soap.  If that doesn't kill them I may have to resort to making my own bug juice.  I may clear a patch of ground and stick a couple more seeds in.  If I get lucky I'll have a second set of plants this fall and may get more of my beloved fruits.

So, depressing as it is, here is my weekly ZUCCHINI REPORT
Picked  3
Eaten  2
Given Away  0 (NONE???!!!)
In Fridge  1
