Lessons learned here:
It is possible to have both squash bugs and stink bugs both, at the same time, in your garden.
It is also possible to have a second infestation a month after you've beaten the first batch.
Not many types of trellising can withstand 100mph winds, and if they can once, or twice....the third time gets em.
3 cucumber plants is enough for my family, my neighbors, my church.... =)
Do NOT put all cucubits (squash, pumpkins, cukes) all in the same row. See comment about squash bugs! =)
Do not put onions in the area around/in front of any plants if you have a short reach!
Plastic mulch is slippery! Also, squash bugs seem to love it because they can hide under it every night.
The coolest time to pick produce will be when the most mosquitoes are out!
Gardening is a Blast!=)
