Invasion!

Of squash bugs!  Well, really it’s mostly grass that has taken over.  Grass never grows easily where you want it to and far too easily where you don’t.  You can easily kill the grass you want but the grass you don’t want just comes back over and over again.  Sigh.  

Anasa tristis, the squash bug. Feeds on cucurbits and can spread Yellow Vine Disease (Serratia). Not much an organic gardener can do but kill them on sight; I have squashed two of three bugs found.
