My precious butternut squash has an infestation of bugs. I learned from a You Tube video that these bugs must be removed by cutting off the infected leaves and killing the bugs. The first thing I thought of was a fire! The eggs are tiny bronze dots and the bugs look like tiny green ticks! I think they were baby bugs because when I look them up online, the adults look like stink bugs. I never saw an adult bug.

I feel history deserves a footnote saying although we came in contact with those who had it, we did not get the virus. We quarantined for two weeks. We missed my family reunion which was devastating, but I still think it was the right decision. If we had contracted the virus we'd have felt terrible about passing it along.
