Pneumonia, I think, Janie.

Congratulations on your successful "500", Bobert.

I just locate and kill the borers, then cover that part of the stem with compost. They can root and continue growing.

I am a one-woman bucket brigade watering the vegetables, flowers, and potted fruit trees. We need rain; I'm grateful we were able to mulch the veggies before the heat spell began. Roses and many different poppy selections are lovely right now.
