Trouble in Melon Land
Do you see what I see?
I had to look it up, because I couldn't figure out what these eggs were. SQUASH BUGS! I purposely didn't plant any squash because of the Squash Vine Borer (that, and I'm the only one who eats it). So I was surprised to learn that the squash bugs will lay eggs on melons. Usually, they lay on the underside of the leaves. Thank goodness this one didn't, or I never would have known they were there.
Since the only tape we had was electrical tape, I grabbed a piece and removed the eggs. I found more once I checked underneath the leaves. Hopefully, I got them all.
