    Sorry to hear about the effects of the weather in Nebraska. Isn't it a drag when we wait all winter to garden and, in most cases, we only get one shot given the length of the growing season. I have had squash borers before but they have never been to the extent that they have killed the whole plant and I don't have any this year. Yesterday, while cleaning up and trimming back some plants, I came across a flowering plant that seeded itself a couple of years back beside my strawberries and it was covered in some type of bug. The weird thing is that the bug only seems to like that plant and has not spread to the strawberries that are intertwined with it. I hope your potatoes continue to do well and maybe you can plant something that likes the cooler weather for a fall crop. Have a good day in the garden yourself.

    We've had a couple more rains but total accumulation was only 1/4 inch. It's still pretty dry. I hit the spout of my storage water tank with the lawn mower and caused a major leak. Since most of the 400 gallons leaked out, the tank has been drained in preparation to be repaired and cleaned.

    There's a chance of rain today. We had a little shower yesterday but could really use more. It's starting to get cracks in the ground dry after three weeks of 90 degree scorching temperatures. Watering gardens are on the rise

    The back yard needs attention. Will be removing weeds and brush.

    A day of rest. It's been a long week.

    Hauled more fence panels. I have enough to circle the entire garden.

    I found the mother load of old fences. I can haul enough to surround the entire garden. All 240 feet. Nice.
