#421: Something's wrong in my Nantucket Garden

Something is wrong in the garden.
There aren't as many potatoes as last year.

 Here;s the culprit. Colorado potato beetles.

They eat the eggplant too.

We kept ahead of the squash bugs...

But this vine borer gutted a zucchini plant.

Vigilance is the price of vegetables.
If you're not going to poison,
you have to check for bugs and kill them daily.

It wasn't like this in the Garden of Eden,
and it won't be in the
Celestial City.
Come soon, Lord Jesus.
