I bought a handful of plants a couple of weeks ago, and this week I put the salvia out in a front bed. I'd separated and nursed along some squash and okra, and this morning I found all three squash plants bitten off at the base. They aren't in the ground, they're in pots, so whatever did this traveled across the pots to do the damage. I haven't figured out who or what the culprit is and my garden is a mess because so many plants have been bitten off or girdled.

This is the time of year when I hit the hot-weather funk; it feels like there is so much to do and it's just too darned hot outside to do most of it. I live for that first cool day of fall.
