The bugs seems to have missed my squash for now, knock wood. A few blooms are turning into veggies - I hope they hurry before we have frost! Grow, grow~quickly!
Pruned up my mountain laurels today. The previous homeowner planted a row of them along the driveway -- UNDER the crape myrtles. While they aren't too big yet, they will be, and even now, they lean plaintively to east and the sun -- sad and lacking on their west sides. And one must have blown over as a young plant, because its trunk is almost horizontal. But I love mountain laurels, so I've cleaned them up a little and tried to help the little one look more like an actual tree and the other 5 plants.
