|Adult Squash Bug|
I'd like to just scare them away with a spray of my water bottle. That's not enough. I had to do away with one adult squash bug and two more nests of squash bug eggs that I found on our plants this morning.
I think I've also encountered one nest of tiny aphids, but the spraying alone seems to take care of them. I was thrilled to see a little brown spider who'd made its home near the plants. I hope it's finding plenty of tiny bugs to munch on.
Our garden seems like a wonderful example of what can go right and wrong in an organic garden.

Despite some difficulties, these plants just keep on growing. The largest is climbing a tomato cage to the sky, kissed by the morning sunshine.
