    I had terrible bugs that I was told were squash bettles. Is there a way to combat these pests organically? - Ryan

    After this freeze: many of my plants froze and now have black leaves so I know that foliage is gone. I know to not cut it off for a while (how long?) so the plant can pull the nutrients back down into their roots, but what kinds of fertilizers can be added to the plants to help them come back strong and when should it be applied.
