Squash Bugs 
 Been fighting Squash bugs all morning.  Not much fun.  Need to had pick the eggs off the leaves and then if you missed any the little bugs hatch and start eating the leaves.  Not much one can do organically but hand remove the eggs and squash (literally) the bugs.  The main ingredient in Neem Oil will get rid of them so I am trying to find that.  To help ward them off I did spray the plants with Neem Oil.  Yes it is organically approved.  It is difficult to watch these beautiful plants fall pray to these bugs.   At this point my plants do not look this bad and I am hoping to keep them under control.
