Anyway,

Can anyone identify this bug on my squash plant? This is from my second garden planted the first week of August and I'm trying so hard to save what was a mediocre season with this last ditch effort. I want to make sure this bug isn't going to harm my plants. I'm already dealing with powdery mildew.

What can you do about powdery mildew on squash plants? Other than trying to find the varieties that are resistant to it? I received the seeds catalog and plan to order the resistant varieties next year.

Potato digging time. I harvested roughly 8 bushel from 50 lbs of seed I planted.

I keep them in a potato bin in my garage. During the fall and winter months, weather permitting, I try to maintain a temperature around 35 to 40 degrees and I usually have potatoes up until mid May. I also have to go through them at least once or twice and remove any bad ones and also any sprouts on them.

Yeah, I used to dig them with a hoe, by hand. I made a gooseneck plow for my gravely and it takes a lot of the backache out of it. I've also learned to bend my knees and keep my back straight when picking them up. Having 4 grandkids, ages 3,6,6,and 7, who love to help me at potato diggin' time, also helps.

Well it looks like fall has hit NWA and it is time to put the garden to rest for the season. We have a lot of tomatoes, grape and AR Travelers but they are not ripening at all. I think I will wait til maybe next week or the following before I pick them and wrap them in newspaper to finish ripening. It hasn't been a great season, but each year I seem to learn more about container gardening. I think by the time I am forces to move and go into some other type of living, we will have it down pat.
