More squash talk

Work in the lab continues.

The control squash (the one in its own bed) is thriving and even has a real deal squash on it.

However, I suspect danger lurks deep within its stems. In the last week, I've scraped about 30 eggs off of the vine.

The experimental squash (the one that was abandoned in the wild to be raised by cantaloupes) is still bug free, but that may just be because the moths have been embarrassed to leave their children there -- it's scrawny. Check out this side by side.

In the ground with the cantaloupe:

In the raised bed by itself:

That certainly makes me feel good about my soil mix tough.
