%, iiiiiii!ii: .... ii iiii ii $300 FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY. During last weekend's annual Couples Golf Tourney, a painting of Minnesota golf pro Tim Herron of Wayzata was auctioned off for $300 for the cause of Habitat For Humanity. Artist was Karl Yaeger of Minneapolis. His parents, Frank and Pat Yaeger, who golf in the tourney each year, donated the print. Highest bidders were Dennis and Mary Pietrini of Minneapolis, shown here flanked by Paul Zahn, left, of HFH and Jerry Wiegman, right, chairman of this year's tourney. A total of 101 couples played in the event this year. Photos of the winners will appear in next week's issue. I Extension report Jean Kvols, County Extension Educator BEWARE OF SQUASH VINE BORER The squash vine borer loves squash, pumpkin, gourds, cucumbers and muskmelons. If your plants suddenly start to wilt, be suspicious of squash vine bores. You can verify their presence by looking closely at the stem; if you notice an orangish or greenish sawdust-like material oozing out, you can confirm bores. The trick is to prevent the damage from getting to this stage because once there, it's most likely too late to effectively manage them. Usually an insecticide application is necessary to protect plants from bores. Your best bet is an application of carbaryi (Sevin) dust. Consider this especially if you've had trouble with borers in the past. Treat developing vines weekly, starting when vines begin to run (about late June or early July). Continue treatments until the end of July. Because squash vine borers emerge at the end of June or early July, you can try a second planting of summer squash in early July. Squash vine borers are done laying eggs when the second planting is vulnerable. An option to consider next year is planting resistant varieties, such as "Waltham" butternut squash, to deter borers. If your plants do become infested, you may be able to save your vegetables if damage is not too severe. Slit the stern with a sharp knife and kill the borer. Try to encourage root development by covering the stem with moist soil. This doesn't always work but you have nothing to lose.
