The chicken wire seems to be working. The cucumbers out in the garden aren't growing very well, but they haven't been eaten. Yet.
The cucumbers I bought are doing well too. Six survived. I'm afraid to plant them out in the garden; they will be staying in the front. I transplanted them into bigger pots the other day, they look ok.
This is shaping up to be a terrible year for pests. Or a great year, depending on your view point. The kale have nasty green caterpillars on them. Some of the caterpillars are on the squash too. Speaking of which, if you have squash you should be checking for borer worm eggs on the under sides of their leaves and stems. If you don't sqush or otherwise remove the tiny red eggs within three days of them being laid they will hatch, bore into your plant, and eat it from the inside.
The wind is terrible still. Ruining my internet connection, beating up the plants, and drying out everything.
