So Far So Good

The squash plants seems to have stabilized. After I visited the garden this morning I decided to read up a little more on those nasty vine borers and realized that I have some more work to do to rectify the situation. Immediately after cutting open the vine to remove the worm, I was supposed to have covered the vine with earth to promote root growth above the problem area. Oops. It's been two days and that hasn't happened yet. Honestly that seems a little counter intuitive to me: covering a fresh wound with a bunch of dirt. In fact, I purposely uncovered the wounded vine and washed it off. I'll be sure to cover it next time I'm there.

Look at this cute little kitten that was hanging out by the mini black eyed susans.
