Pickleworms...

Speaking of squirming things... I noticed that the Pickleworms have finally made it back. They destroyed the handful of cukes left on my vines. Oh, well, they arrived mid-May last year. I guess I got a few extra weeks of cucumbers. Last year, I had some really productive varieties (Cucino, in particular) at peak production, and it made sense to go the extra mile and cover the cukes with bags. Not worth it this year.

hey, susan! dill's long past its season. i grow it all winter, but doesn't take off until the beginning of spring, and then it peters out with the heat. so, really, it's hard to grow here. it does well from late february until the end of april, maybe a little into may. i start mine from seeds, but it's probably not worth the trouble. i'm saving seeds. again, just my cheapness.
