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.

I had to stop trying to grow pumpkins. The blossoms turned sickly, blotchy colors and fell off after blooming, despite looking just fine for a day or three, or small grubby things made nests in the stems. Even when I grew them inside.
Still gotta figure out what the blotchy thing is. It seems to affect the leaves of everything except aloe as well.
