|My sticky trap.|
For some reason, the cucumber beetles don't seem to be laying eggs on the cucumbers. It is weird, but I'm okay with it!
The squash plants had quit producing fruits, I think it may have been because of the heat. Luckily it has cooled down, and I've seen a couple of baby squash on the plants.
The newest problem is the tomatoes! Several of the plants were starting to yellow at the bottom, which can be a sign of several different diseases (mostly blights and wilts) as well as many nutrient deficiencies. I decided to be safe and remove all of the yellow branches, and put them in the trash (not the compost!). I'm also going to give them several treatments of compost tea and maybe some other fertilizers, just in case it is a deficiency.
