Looks like the season has begun in earnest and there's going to be no grace period at all.
I found my first spotted cucumber beetle and squash bug today, and I didn't manage to catch either because I was dumbfounded, put out and out of practice. I did manage to stifle the curses since the boy and girl were in the yard with me, but I found if you use words like "buttered toast" and "green balls" with enough rancor in your voice, you get the same results.
I suppose it's to be expected now that we're not in a drought and we've had an abnormally warm spring. That's okay. Squishing bugs is like riding a bike, right? EG, you're probably rubbing your hands together and muah-ha-ha-ing like a mad man in anticipation of the carnage.
