Decided to try weed fabric this year to help cut back on maintenance. 2 layers of week fabric. Started laying out the drip and got the green house set up. Just waiting on seeds to germinate.

Finally in the ground. Plants took longer then expected to germinate but they are in and adapting well.

1829 urena. Vine is about 10 feet long and doing 6-8" per day. Wednesday did a soil drench with about 30 gallons of tea. Last night got fogger set up. The next few days are in the high 80s to mid 90s. Have a female about 10 days out. Not sure I'm going to keep it or not.

Tested positive for the rona this morning. I moved out to the trailer to quarantine. This is the view from my bedroom. Vine is about 12 feet right now. First few secondaries are 9 feet or so. 1 female sitting at 10 feet but not a single male has opened yet. My have to make some phone calls for some pollinators.

Not sure what happen but there is no longer a growth tip on the main vine. I didn't cut it off and it doesn't look like anything chewed it off. Anyone ever had a plant stop producing a growth tip?

Anyone had to deal with squash Beatles? They trashed my plant this year just before pollination. Any help to treat or prevent would be appreciated. Thank you
