I picked off two of them and didn't see any eggs to speak of. Looks like I'll be taking more frequent trips to the garden just to check on it. If I can keep them from laying eggs it may not be so bad. I have one zucchini maturing now, which is good. Three more females were open today, but there was no male to speak of. Go figure, tomorrow I'll have at least two males open, but I think one of my females may just make it as well.
There seems to be more than the one grub making a mess of our yard. The man put down something to help draw them out, so we'll see what things look like in a few days.I've been trying to hand pollinate the cucumbers since the number of males is completely lacking, but only one cucumber seems to have been pollinated. Hopefully I'll still have some time before the heat gets to be too much around here.
We picked about 5 oz of royal burgundy beans today and I put them raw into a coleslaw like dish. Not too shabby.
We're expecting rain these next two days. However, when you do have to water the garden, you might as well stick the kids in swim suits and enjoy it all around.
Winter stocking cap is optional, of course.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
