Looks like the squash-vine borer has hit again. I just don't have the energy to dig them out anymore.
Not only is it unhappy with the weather, but it appears someone
attempted to dig it out last night.
These are supposed to need very little water, but they have just been so thirsty in this heat. I refuse to water them more than once a week and I really don't think that will be enough.
The coneflowers are doing great. You can also see cosmos in the background.
I'll be planting more of both of these next year.
