Cucumbers, Plus Cucumber Beetles

Good news first: the cucumbers I planted in late summer are coming along pretty well. I’ve already been able to harvest a few, which was exciting.

Bad news: Today, I noticed a bug on one of the cucumber leaves. From what I can tell, it’s a striped cucumber beetle. Follow the link to read more information about these pests from the Clemson Cooperative Extension in South Carolina. I really wish I’d squished that bug.
