I purchased a Fuel 80 12 years ago and was able to upgrade because of a credit TREK offered when the previous frame broke. What a leap forward!! The 29″ wheels and hydraulic disc brakes are the most notable improvements, but the suspension also seems to be much better. I like the ease of changing the settings on the shocks, though I’ve only used it in the Trail mode. I’ve only ridden it once but it took everything I threw at it and I was able to get up some hills I wouldn’t have been able to before.

Squash Problems

Having problems with my Spaghetti squash. I have 4 plants here, and one of them took a bad turn a couple of days ago. I took this picture this morning showing all 4 squash plants. The other three looked healthy this morning. (Click for larger pictures).

This evening another squash plant (the furthest one away in the above picture) looked all wilted, but most leaves still look good. I have examined both plants for Squash Borer Worms but found no evidence. I gave the garden a drink of water because the dirt was dry, but the rest of the garden including 2 other Spaghetti Squash and other yellow squash plants all look good.
