    We just drove back from TX, through OK and MO with some pretty nasty weather all around us. We've had some hard straight-line winds at home, too, but what saved us from tornadoes is that it just didn't get warm enough to have the contrasting temps. I hate to complain about our weather when they're still getting tornadoes south of us! One tree broken, and one leaning pretty hard up by our driveway The broken one is a mountain ash (rowan). There were huge numbers of buds, almost ready for...

    It's mostly cloudy, but not bad here today. However, I can't set foot in the garden or I'll sink in up to my ankles. Things are very slow to come up, and I'm not yet sure what will and what won't need to be replanted. I tried three Wyatt's Wonder seeds. I put one in the ground with a cut-off milk jug over it to hold the heat in. No sign of germination. I let one germinate indoors, and then planted the sprouted seed out (with milk jug mini-greenhouse" over it). Nothing has shown up...

    I really feel like I need more single-click response options than just "thanks" and "like". I like the safe planting, but not the storms. They did some damage in my yard, too.

    Kdestra-- I'd look at treehoppers. They are legion, and some have pretty specific ranges, but that's where I'd start-- similar to this: https://bugguide.net/node/view/10205 I'll add another: https://www.flickr.com/photos/pcoin/4007677401 The color will vary somewhat from one individual (or one location) to another.

    Col. Fryght, I think you put as much work into your pumpkin plants as I do into my entire garden! Kdestra-- I love the rescue patio set! I expect Green Man to join you for tea. :)

    Here's the type of rhythm instrument, gourd and Job's tears shekere, that I hope to make sometime, though I'm not growing that shape of gourd, and I'll probably choose some more natural-looking cording.

    Col- Yeah, yours is an entirely different routine for a different goal. There's no way on earth we observers could ever consider it lazy! I just try to do the best I can with the conditions I have. I know I'll never grow a respectable giant, but variety I can manage...generally. I'm not going to get cocky or anything! haha! I'm really hoping I can make a go of Wyatt's Wonder, even though I don't expect anything near what they give for possible maximum size. They say 110 to 120 days,...

    Wow, Mayor-- 40 pumpkin plants! Holy cow! (I'm thinking I might find room for 15 or so!) I went ahead and put one single pumpkin seed-- a Wyatt's Wonder -- in the garden, covering it with a milk jug. If/when it comes up, I'll take the covering off pretty quickly so it firms up enough to face the wind and sun. If it doesn't germinate (the ground really hasn't warmed up yet. We've had lows in the mid to high 30s in the last few days.) that's no big deal. I'll try again in another week...

    I put in several different varieties of sunflowers last year. I didn't notice whether they attracted different pollinators, but that would be interesting to watch for. Some of the big ones develop such heavy heads that they'd tip when the ground got saturated and it was windy. The root systems were just too small to hold them down, even though some of the stems felt almost like baseball bats. Since we have some beetle fans here---- I've only once seen an eyed elater myself. Funny...

    That sounds about like my success rate with luffas! Even when I got plants to germinate, I'd wind up with all the same gender, or no flowers on the male plants while the female plants were blooming (or vice versa). On the extremely rare occasions when fruit would start to form, they would be killed by frost before they got mature enough to be fibrous. So when I finally got one single fruit to mature, I called it a win, and decided to wash my hands of them...so to speak. So, naturally,...

    I bought this last week for $5. The woman said that the sound was broken but could probably be fixed. She agreed to ship it to me and packed it up in lots of bubble wrap and sent it. Shipping was a little over $11 and well worth it. Sound does work, but I haven't done much more than pull it out the box and flip on the switch for a few seconds. I also scored a 6 ft. witch for $25. It was in a small town about an hour and a half from me. I have an ex student who lives there so I PayPal 'd her...

    Stinkerbell those are awesome ideas. what do you attach the sides to? I would love to do something like this but don't have poles or anything to attach sides to. I just looked at your link and saw the canopies put together. Duh, I never thought of that either! Smacks my head. We have had so much rain the past few years, I really wish I could use my large screened porch in the back yard, but hubby is adamant about not having them in the back.

    It's amazing to see pumpkins in bloom already! They're still predicting some nights in the 30s for the upcoming week here. I got some cold-hardy vegetable seeds in the garden, but things won't be ready for sensitive stuff for a while. I don't now about the other varieties, but you should wind up swamped with Early Giants! They're quite productive! I got a dozen fully ripe pumpkins from two plants last year. There were a couple more that were still green at first frost, but they...

    I didn't find my Wyatt's Wonder seeds yet, but I did find some for Blue Doll and New Moon. I didn't even know I had those! They're a few years old, and all I can figure is that I got them at an end-of-the-season closeout sale. Sometimes seeds will be offered at 10 for $1. UnOrthodOx-- Not that much room here, either, or maybe I should say, not that much enthusiasm on my part for pulling weeds! Last year I made a nice display, gave away a bunch of pumpkins, and still had a lot just go...

I just have too many squash seeds already, and decided to wait until next year, though. They do sound good, being useful as a summer or winter squash, and they'd be fantastic decorations. I'll be anxious to hear your opinions on them. I'm getting Very anxious to get the garden in, but we've been having rain every day and highs...

    Oh congrats on the upcoming birth!! Do you have pictures of your parties since you've been doing this theme? I'd love to see them or page through your albums if you have some.

    I love those little cups, too. I couldn't believe it when I found so many still in the package at Goodwill. Wish you good luck in finding some while on your hunting.
