i remember the first time i ever saw one...an adult...i called them Shield bugs because their backs looked like patterned shields. Beautiful design. Soon, i found out what they do. I don't mind so much with the summer squash. I have some heartbreak with the winter squash. But there is no use to the heart break... They are pretty incorrigable. and seeds. yes. they do, don't they.

August is a being that moves in accordance to the necessity of the moment. She gives mold. She gives ripening. She gives seed and she gives Abundance of so MUCH both Beautiful and Not, but all Glorious

i will look at spraying vinegar for the squash bugs. But in my experience here, they will have their way. Sometimes they don't come. But most times they do. and i don't know the Why of either. I DID get some of the most beauty full and great Tatuma squash and zuchinni for 2 batches of Zuchinni Pizza. Celebrations of seasons, these. I still somehow cling to the thing of growing enough to Hold Over and this i could not do. But i think of that. I did feed self in the present. Maybe that's good enough?? i love the image i create of you stealthily pulling out by the roots in the dark....love this.

Alz B's son Bill came. Bringing the load of grass hay and then fiddling with the new stove because it is evidently not converted from natural gas settings to propane. So the evening was this. And was Tay, who is very wary. She barked and growled and stayed back. And... Continue reading
