  • I can hardly wait for this year’s first harvest of summer squash.  
    Last year was a bust because of the heat so I have high hopes for a bumper squash crop this year.
    Mostly gardeners complain about losing their plants to the squash vine borer, but I have managed mostly to offset that pest pressure by delaying planting in order to miss peak egg-laying time.  
    I have also used row covers, lifting them in the morning so bees can do their pollinating then covering them during the day when mama wasp of the vine borer does her work.  

  • Nominations for Farm Service Agency county committees opened on Wednesday, June 15, according to Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer.
