I was listening to a talk show podcast earlier today, and the guest was a garden blogger. One of the callers said you could slide a knee high nylon over squash as they grew to protect them from insects. Has anybody ever heard of this?

Funny you should mention that. I was just thinking it might be a good idea to use over tomatoes for the same purpose. I don't see why not.

Over the fruit, or over the whole plant? I have been wondering if it might be good material to protect squash stems.

I think it would be worth trying pantyhose over the squash stems. If you try it, let everyone know how it worked. It sounds clever to me.

Yep, we have done that before. The plant can still grow but no bugs. I also use them on the peaches ofcourse right now we only have one since the trees are new. LOL. We also use the old pantyhose to help hold up the cantaloupe and watermelon on the trellis.

Raccoon got through the pantyhose and ruined a cantaloupe. Also, there's a nasty pile of mysterious puke in the garden, so now I'm worried the poor raccoon ingested some of the pantyhose.  Sad Next year the cantaloupe will go in the Salad Bar where the poor little coons won't be tempted (I hope).

I learned the hard way that I can only have green stuff out in the open. If it's red or yellow, it needs to be behind walls (Salad Bar). So, next year I'll bring the big containers out of the enclosure and plant my melons and tomatoes inside.  Razz

I appreciate the sympathy, folks, but I am not discouraged. This year's garden is way more successful than last year, and now that we're (hopefully) finished with triple-digits, I am a happy camper. I still have at least 6 glorious weeks to play outside, and then I'm going to experiment with better lighting for my inside gardens. I've learned so much, I have to believe that true success is right around the corner. Using pantyhose to protect squash? 3170584802
