    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. (haha-- like this, only not like this.) https://www.niceshopus.com/content?c=shekere&id=7 I have no idea about the supplier-- not recommending nor denigrating, just using their picture and giving them the credit for it. While I was looking for a decent shot, I stumbled across another...

    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,...

    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...

    Welcome, EyeballsStudio, and best of luck with your new crop! Pumpkin growing can be addictive. Kdestra-- I agonized over those Patisson Strie MeLange myself. 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...

    I've used various grow lights, and I agree with Col. Fryght's assessment. There are some seeds that need light to germinate, and if started indoors those will benefit from full-spectrum lighting. If you're growing orchids year 'round under artificial lighting, go with the pricy bulbs. But for giving cucurbits a jump start for a few weeks, I don't think it's worth the cost. You'd do them a lot more good by starting them in a flat and setting it outside when the weather permits. That...

    Sorry MC, I only pinned it, did not make it. But here's what she used. You can buy these dinosaur hats at Dollar Tree. Online, you have to buy the whole case. https://www.dollartree.com/toys/cost...?method=search They look pretty good on their own. Depending on your use, you could probably just paint them and be done with it (without the expanding foam).
