Can you see the missing squash? Squash gopher is to blame. We're determined to catch it before it eats the plants all the way down the line. We'd rather you got the squash in your boxes then have Squash gopher eat all the roots. Other roots are sizing up nicely. You should see more carrot and beets options... read more »
