I think my post-surgery squash are going to live.

It's too early to be really, really certain, but I think that my squash plants might just make it post-surgery!

I don't want to jinx them, so I'm going to wait a little while longer before posting photos of their sprightly, springy green stalks (and the big old mounds of richly composted, clay-rich earth I packed around their main stems after slitting them open to remove wormy, white, 1-inch long squash borer larvae).

Anyone else have squash borer success stories to share?


  1. No stories here, but pure admiration for your gardening gumption! Fingers crossed for the squashes.
