April was a busy month at my house. It turned out to be a warm month as well. Everything seems to be about 2-3 weeks ahead of last year. Since we had such a warm winter, apparently the bugs just rested and are now out in full force! I have declared war on squash bugs and hope to keep them at bay long enough to get a good harvest this summer! I have been planting, weeding, fertilizing, putting soaker hoses between rows, looking for squash bugs and/or their eggs, and mulching, mulching, mulching, etc. Of course I have had some help along the way - Thank you James, Brody, Alicia, Brody, Hadley,Jackson and Taylor for any and all assistance you have provided!
