I wish I could credit my awesome gardening skills for the frenzied off-its-meds situation in my little vegetable patch, but it is more likely due to a soggy June.

Ana, my neighbor and best friend, is a much better plant-maker-grower than I. I occasionally have to fake my way through conversations like this:

Ana: I thought I should tell you. Your squash has a mildew.
Me: A mildew? It does?
Ana: Yes, mine does too.
Me: Well, shit. What do we do?
Ana: I spritzed them both with a baking soda and water solution. Should be fine.
Me: So, no more mildew?
Ana: No more mildew.
