|The Evil Squash Bug|
But a few things came up and thrived.
Okra. I have a great okra crop. And there are so many pods coming on right now, I'm having to freeze it. More on that later.
The only thing I don't like about okra is how sneaky it is. It's very hard, somehow, to find all the okra that is ready to be picked. It really tries to hide.

Then I have a lot of black-eyed peas coming on. They have been slow so far but I think I'm going to have an explosion of peas pretty soon.
My tomatoes started out fine but then got blight and pfffft. Luckily I planted reserve tomatoes in other places. The rule is: One can NEVER PLANT TOO MANY TOMATOES!
I learned my lesson; get after the squash bugs earlier. Next spring I will be on the look-out for those little red eggs on the underside of the leaves and get busy eradicating those destructive animalitos, con prisa!
Speaking of insects, I happened to see this drama on one of the picket stakes today. The spider is definitely winning. Go, Spidey!
