Goodbye Squash Crop

The cure for Pickleworm is apparently a whole lot of poison. You can use organic poison, but that’s still what you’re doing. Otherwise, cry a lot, use row covers, and cry some more.

I am hoping to grow Gem Squash next year, and have planned to grow nothing BUT so that I get seeds for saving, and I'm REALLY hoping they fruit before the pickleworms arrive.

This year I planted zuccini and squash becasue the bunnies won't eat them. Instead, I lost the whole crop, about a dozen plants, to squash vine borers. I started those seeds in Feb.! I raise my glass to you in sympathy.
