Our squash harvest has been abundant so far! I’m so proud of these babies bc they’re my first harvest that I started from seeds in the greenhouse 💚 the only struggle is keeping the dang squash bugs away organically 😤 In addition to companion planting I’ve been spraying the plants with a homemade bug repellent and picking the beetles off by hand. So far so good 🌱🤞🌿

    @strawberrrries_ thank you! They’re soooo tasty! I’m trying to figure out different ways of cooking them 😋

    Yumm! What beauts! Try surrounding them with marigolds, or garlic, the buggies hate those!

    @katieinstajo thanks love!! We try companion planting but the bugs are still freakin relentless! (Also my homemade bug repellent spray is a combo of garlic, bronners lavender soap, cayenne, & tea tree oil mixed in water..it helps but you have to reapply after the rain)
    We’ve learned the best trick is just constant maintenance 😅
