Now I'm in a positive quandry! Our local horticulturists (and the 
trusty County Agent) all but forbid the planting of St Augustine 
grass in our rain-shy area. They recommend "mowing your weeds" or if 
you must have a real lawn, recommend Bermuda despite its 
invasiveness. George says St Augustine doesn't need water, and 
as Allen preaches, County Agents are never wrong.

Won't someone please solve this conundrum for me? Pat
PS - The squash are blooming but look puny otherwise. Something seems 
to be attacking them. More later.
