Haven't posted much about the garden, it has been an ok season.  Zucchini got powdery mildew fast with all the humid conditions, but everything else is holding its own. We are awash in cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.

This is a thing of beauty,  Parasitoid wasp eggs on a tomato hornworm.  All six I have picked off plants had them.

Played Limekiln friday, another course closing this year, bummer.

Anyone ever play Olde Homestead? Playing there Saturday,  looks like a tough one.

Ballamor is super nice and one of my favorites. . Shoregate if you wanna drive south (directly outside of Sea Isle). Tougher to play, but nice layout.  Atlantic City country club if you wanna pony up $$. Then there’s always Seaview resort.

When Justin Thomas goes low, he really goes low.

He got into trouble a few times but recovered nicely.

If he can keep his wrists healthy, he has that it factor to win.    I hope your Ballamor round is this morning.

Nope, 12:30pm. Not happy about it. Hoping a marine layer keeps clouds overhead,  but that's not my luck.

Played Oak Island CC a couple times last week, remarkable recovery after Hurricane Florence & over 100" of rain last year. They lost 11 greens from flooding & over 250 trees from Florence. Thursday I we were golfing at a safari with all the wildlife running, swimming & flying around.

Appreciate the recommendations for Ballamor. Beautiful course, no one in front or behind us. 

Ominous clouds around and mostly cloudy with a southerly breeze.  Hot as.. well, you know what I mean. 😉

It was a great time. Since there was nobody behind us they were turning the sprinklers on as we finished the holes.

Finished with a 86. Happy with that and it would have been better if not for those DAMN sand traps... 🤐

86 is a great score on that course. I don't think my cartner & I scrambled an 86.  It is a very nice set up with three clusters of 6 holes or so in each cluster.

When would you recommend an aerate/over-seed in the weeks ahead? Start of September?

Forgiving fairways for the most part. Sand traps were tough. Best course I played this year.
