HELP!!!! We are being attacked by the eggplant and cucumber beings. Six 
cuke plants and six eggplants are producing so much fruit that the 
neighbors are starting to hide again.

In addition my zucchete rampicante-trombocino plants, both of them, are 
absolutely loaded with fruit. Where are the squash borers when you need 
them? Green beans are still producing, okra is starting to come in heavy 
but the blasted tomatoes are rotting on the vine before they get ripe. 
Too much rain followed by too much sunshine.

In addition Miz Anne picked a gallon of figs today and that didn't even 
thin the crop. This has got to be the most fecund year we've ever had in 
the 15 years we've lived here. Even the elderberries are leaning over 
with fruit.

Life is good but sometimes too good. <VBG>
