After an unusually cool and rainy spring, much of New Hampshire is now experiencing a moderate drought. In response, many municipalities and public water systems have implemented voluntary or mandatory outdoor water use restrictions. Those with private wells also have to be cautious with how they use water. Recent rains certainly help, but they won’t entirely make up the deficit.

If some of the plants in your vegetable garden are riddled with small holes, there is a good chance you have flea beetles. Flea beetles are a group of small leaf beetles that range in size from 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch long, in various shades of black, bronze, brown, blue and gray, depending on species. They are so named because they have large, powerful hind legs and can jump when they are disturbed.
