memento mori nota bene

in loving memory of the volunteer pumpkin that tried and tried to beat those darn squash vine borers. hippychick did her best to dig them out but alas was either too late or missed too many.
we shall remember the vines fondly.

- next year -
all squash and pumpkins under row covers
why i had not figured that out until now escapes me
my gardeners sense of hope conquered by the pesky vine borers yet again

take heed fellow gardeners - cover your squash - if you ever have once battled the borers
give them no entry to the vine
then victory with be thine

just wait until next year!
i will succeed with squash in texas someday, i promise you!
