That is SO WEIRD! Wow, I'll have to make sure I don't kill those off by accident. Maybe I already did and didn't realize it.

Update: The aphids are gone. The magnificent ladybugs have consumed them ALL! I lost a couple pickler and slicer cukes, but the armenian held up and is back to growing and producing now.

Lost a butternut to the SVB, though.

I like watching ladybug larvae, they look like microscopic alligators on the prowl.

[QUOTE=tomboy mom;14861]
any idea how the seminole does in the desert? i have table queen acorn that are partially shaded and these seem to require very little water. i would love to find a summer-ish variety that tolerates lower watering.

I could try growing Cucurbita mixta cultivars (cushaw squash, etc.). They are native to the Southwest (just as C. moschata is native to the Southeast) and were grown by the Hopi and other native tribes. Hopefully they should be more drought tolerant than curcurbits originally native to wetter regions.
