I feel sorry for the much maligned wasp, especially at this time of year. They are fantastic predators, and spend the spring and summer hunting caterpillars and grubs to feed the larvae in the nest. In doing so, they perform a great service to gardeners. The wasps are unable to digest the caterpillars themselves (their waists are too thin), but they feed on a sweet substance that wasp-larvae produce. However, by late summer, the Queen stops producing larvae, so the wasps no longer have a job, and need to find alternative sugar sources. They feed on fermented fruit, becoming drunk and aggressive. Well, you would be too if you have lost your job, your food and are facing imminent death. So, please look a little more kindly on them... better a wasp than a pesticide in your garden. 🐝🐝🐝🎨🌸

My mom was kind enough to come by our garden and harvest while we were away, but apparently she forgot to look under the giant leaves of the Romanesco zucchini...feet for scale. The larger one is over 18lbs! Hahahaaaaa-classic. This is a perfect, albeit extreme, example of why you should harvest your summer squash often. 😂😳
