    What a friggin learning experience. My patch runs hot like 102 degrees hot for a couple of hours during the day. I have two huge fans blowing that are set to come on at 74 degrees. The B.E.E. is retaining some serious heat, but the leaves are not wilting. It is the craziest thing and it hurts my head. I guess a 102 in the shade is better than 92 in the sun. lol As a temporary solution, I cut out four windows in the plastic poly on one side. I am hoping that this will release any trapped...

    I remember seeing this craft project a few years ago and thinking it was really cool looking. Yours turned out so lovely! I'd want to make several more so I could do a whole display of them on like a side table or something! https://flamingotoes.com/spooky-crystal-ball-halloween-candlesticks/ For anyone wanting the tutorial!

    Frankie's Girl replied to a thread Pneumatic: how is this movement done? in Halloween Props
    I a sooooo not an expert, but it might be a standard wiper motor attached to a more bendy wire/arm to the upper body on a long throw, set to a faster rpm. I've done a rocking chair using a wiper motor and attaching it with a wire coathanger wire (cut it and then wrapped it around a screw) and I could see some "bounce" in the movement from the wire being more flexible, and could definitely see a faster RPM causing it to flail a bit more... At least this may serve as a bump to get the...

    They're saying that windstorm was 65 MPH winds. And we've already had 3" more water than a normal water year. The water year is measured through SEPTEMBER.

    I think any of the Gemmy projector lights could do a decent job of it, really, depending on what you're going for, how far from the window the tree is, whether the tree normally drops it's leaves prior to halloween or not, etc. Depending on your definition of budget, maybe the Chauvet mini laser?

    I don't know how you people deal with tornadoes. We have one maybe every decade or three in the whole state. And while I was driving when the last one hit, right where it hit, and it was only a little F1, it did some fairly impressive damage. Stay safe. We had a freak windstorm this morning, tore a tree down in my neighbor's yard, but my place was still fine when I left for work.

    Being far from the east coast, I've never seen similar, but can narrow down the possibilities significantly. It's clearly Hemiptera order, so related to stink bugs and the like. How certain are you it was eating on the sunflowers? Given the rather significant camo on this guy, I'd almost suggest a species of ambush bug. Potentially feeding on aphids or something similar. Do you have oak trees near by any chance?

    Seriously, how does it get sooooo hot, sooooooo darn fast!!!!!!!!! Pumpkins basically shut down at 90 degrees, and look at my forecast. Heck, 90 degree high is the coolest for the next week.

    The B.E.E. (Bug Exclusion Enclosure) is rounding into form. I have the insect netting over the entire 1200sqft. and the shade netting on the western half is up and the eastern half is secured on one side but not stretched out. As you can see the shade netting does not run the entire length of the structure. The one corner of my patch is in constant shade starting around 2pm so I am letting that end get a little more sunshine. I have learned a lot of lessons during the process and hopefully...

    *glances around* So, um, I'm just going to say it... I normally park on the street. Am I unintentionally being an *******? I mean, I understand the being upset with clutter, blocking the walkway, and people parking in front of YOUR place. But the house across the road parking on their side of the street? I don't see how that would be any business of mine. We've got 4 cars on 4 very different schedules. While we can all fit in the drive, it's a lot easier if I park on the...

    Hey Poodles. For a slightly different effect than the flame bulbs JW posted (which are pretty cool), you can also purchase a device that makes lights flicker. LightsAlive makes something called a "MiniFlicker 2"... https://lightsalive.com/miniflicker2.html. It can run up to two devices via standard plug. They're not cheap though at $99. I bought one last year to use in our Freddy "basement" display in one of the front windows. Here's a video to show you how it looks. The fixture on top of...

    Well the Big Moose were aggressively bursting from the pots to where I risked damaging the roots if I didn't get them in, so they're out. It's not a hoop house, but it'll have to do. The third row was inside some corn (in case these need shade), so I couldn't row cover it, just hoping this week of wet doesn't bring more hail.

    Well I'm kind of on it/kind of not. I'm under a faux name because I don't want people, long forgotten by choice, to find me. I use it 100% for Halloween stuff. However I must admit I am on it sporadically.

    Yes that's where I saw them. Your doing an awesome job!!!!
  5. Buying. I had the opportunity to buy a mold and make my own but figured it's easier to just buy them. I found a great source on Haunter's Hangout and the skulls are nicely detailed and inexpensive. I'll likely get some more as our theme this year will be "skull heavy", whatever that means. I take it you're on Haunter's Hangout?
