Our well seems to be holding just fine, but we have cut way back on our watering. The grass seed we put out earlier in June is now just brown and dead grass. We may try again this fall, but if we don't get some decent rain, that will not be done. we put soaker hoses on everything we want to try to save for the fall, but even that won't keep the blister bugs from decimating what is left. I lost one tomato plant to a horn worm, This worm is as long as my ring finger and almost as big around. YUCK!!! They will be having a date with Sevin this evening! I don't like to use it, but I will not lose my garden to these creepy little bugs. FYI, a blister bug won't bite or sting you but if you crush it and get the fluids on you it will cause blisters and if these break, they will spread. Death to blister bugs!
One of the biggest I've seen
Cicada in my dead grass
black blister bugs and all their mess
So, right now the garden is looking okay. Here are some pics. I have lots of yellow squash and acorn squash if any one would like some.
Well, we have squash.
