    LOL! Too funny! :D Well, the rest of my sunflowers have finally been sprouting in my greenhouse so, once the weather gets warm and not windy and raining, again, I'll get those planted out in the garden. I finally have my mini October Pumpkin, Daisy Gourd, Cucumber and Zucchini seeds all in their germination baggies. In a couple days, I should, hopefully, have some germination happening and I can get them potted. Once they get to first true leaf size, outside they will go!! All of them...

    It's amazing all that you are doing for your pumpkins, Col. Kdestra, great score on the patio set...I'd have grabbed that up, too, in a heartbeat!!!

    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. :)

    Yeah, the costume enhancement is tempting, but I'm afraid the dog might make off with it ...so she could roll in it. (pew!) Love the garden helper, K.! Nice of you to re-home the wagon.

    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.

    Our weather is, finally, warming up to outdoor planting temps!! Now that our lows are out of the danger zone...so far...and our highs are jumping up to 70's and 80's all of the sudden (why do we never have a nice, long Spring or Fall, anymore?? Just right up to 80's...sigh...), I went ahead and started planting my seedlings in ground, outside. Of course, no sooner do I do this and the weather says possible severe storms, tomorrow. Sigh, again. Here's to hoping everything doesn't get pummeled. ...

    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...

    Interesting. If I can get some of each to germinate and get to full size/bloom, it'll be cool to see the differences in the two and what they each attract in my area. I love sunflowers...they are gorgeous and always give me those first "Fall is coming" feelings in the Summer...plus, they give me seeds for the animals for the Winter!

    I got my Sunflowers started, yesterday, in my greenhouse. I just kept forgetting to start them...grrrr. Oh well. They are both Giant varieties: the Mammoth Gray Stripes I usually plant and some new Russian Giant ones that a friend sent me some seeds of. We will see how they do as, last year, animals ripped all mine up and the one that made it was broken before it could bloom...sigh... It's getting closer and closer to time to start germinating my pumpkins, squash and cucumbers...counting...

    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,...

    That is really disappointing to hear. They had the ability to reach out to you and make things right ,and instead they remove the post completely. Have you contacted them directly over the issue with the mask and also asked about why your review on their site was removed? I would be interested to see what they say for both inquiries. I am going to move this thread into our "reviews" section, but I do hope others post if they have experience with this company - good or bad - is always...

    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...

    Like ooojen and some others, our weather is still too up and down to start and pumpkins or squash. All I have planted outside is still some lettuce and carrots...which recently started sprouting...and I just transplanted some of my flower seedlings from my greenhouse into my fairy garden, which I set up, yesterday, and into pots. We will see how they do with our up and down temps and more upcoming rainy weather (come on, Illinois is already drowning and flooding!!). I still have Marigolds,...

    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...

    Hello,
    I noticed your post on the "Maryland Home Haunters" group about a possible make-and-take. I was contacted by someone from Kensington MD (through the "Garage Of Evil" website) who is forming a local home haunters group. So far 10-20 people have expressed an interest in this workshop. Our first meeting will be Saturday, September 13th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at his home in Kensington.

    This first workshop will be meeting everyone, some discussion about what the group will focus on, and then a tombstone make-and-take (or you can bring a different project if you like). Let me know if you'd be interested in participating, and I'll send you details.

    Thanks,
    John
