My Friend Neither Do I

Holy Toledo! You can learn useful stuff on the internets! I have blossoms from three or four kinds of squash plants and I know blossoms are food, but how?

That couldn’t be any clearer, could it? I struggled a little with the cleaning, but figured out a trick with a slowly dripping faucet. Before I knew it, Pete and I were eating about a dozen of these. It wasn’t even difficult!

Confession: if you stuffed it with pesto and cheese, then breaded it, I'd probably eat a washcloth.

How did we survive before we could ask the whole connected world questions and demand short answers? I put “white spots on squash leaves” into the Great Gazoogle and dozens of excellent teachers appeared.

Water + baking soda, both sides of the leaves, twice a day, three days. I’m half-way to problem: solved!
