Garden Stop-N-Go

Here's the happy-looking garden. If you look closer, though, you'll see its smile fading in the dry summer sun. Productivity has slowed to a crawl to conserve moisture.

Meanwhile, the bean beetles and borers are stepping up the pace, chomping up green beans and wilting yellow squash and zucchini vines right and left.

Here I go to do pest/drought combat before dark.
