Last year I decided not to grow any squash. My hope was that any squash bugs that emerged from eggs laid the previous year would starve to death and be unable to lay any eggs that would hatch this season. So far, it seems that strategy worked. There hasn't been a squash bug sighting yet. And I've had a good harvest of summer squash while the winter squash is developing quite nicely.
Today I harvested the papaya pear squash beauty you see in the photo above, along with some jalapeño and pizza peppers, to make soup. And yes, it was delicious.
