And the winner is...

...*dingdingdingding* Squash vine borers! Yes, the squash plants put up a valiant fight, but in the end I just did not have the will to cut them open and dig the disgusting little critters out. Oh well. Maybe I can grow a fall crop of sugar snap peas here. And the marigolds are still pretty.On the bright side, a cold front moved through yesterday and it's a beautiful morning. And look at this guy! The jalapeno plants did not do well early on because they were getting too much water. But after I rearranged the soaker hose and they dried out a bit, they started doing better. And now I have a pepper for the next batch of chili!

You win some and you lose some,but I can just taste the chile that you will make with that pepper. I have tasted your chile before, and I know what I am talking about, it is good.
