    I've been through a hell house with one of those in the abortion room... DO NOT RECOMMEND. I do like the dentist idea.

    *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...

    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.

    Sitting here listening to a particularly violent hailstorm in the dark of the morning. The sunflowers might be toast (they are generally tough, so maybe not). Most the tomatoes have a row cover on, though, and at least I had decided against trying to push the pumpkins out yet. That's an awesome wagon Kdestra. Who's pup? I can just see him riding down the street in the wagon LOL.

    Yeah, I was prepared for a huge fail from the get go, but to have it down to it being eaten is hard to swallow. I'm not set up in any way to prevent such eating in the future either. I actually encourage the likely culprits of cats or skunk (more likely with the digging) to keep away other unwanted things anyway.

    Define 'going big'. There's been a marked increase over the last 7 years. I don't think it's coincidental at all that my carving party started 8 years ago. But, I had a haunt for many years before that as well that didn't quite elicit the same response as getting the neighborhood involved with the party seems to have. No, no one 'goes big', as in cover a yard in a haunt, but they 'go small'. They actually decorate. Bats in trees, a couple props here or there, light projections,...

    Lesson from the millet experiment. Millet is delicious. That is all. Something dug all of it up and ate it from the garden yesterday/last night, after my cats ate what they could reach indoors.

    Don't know that I mentioned, but the seeds I bought this year were coated, so I didn't dare do the baggie method I normally do. I'd been getting nervous since it'd been a week, but we finally have some pumpkins. 3 of the Big Moose have sprung to life. I double checked one of the minis on one of the Early Giants, and they both had barely germinated, so will bee a bit behind. We also sewed a bunch of indian corn I got in a free pack with one of my orders and a bunch more sunflower...

    PIRs take about 90 seconds to "warm up" and work have you tried each combination and let enough time pass? Also can you post a link to the PIR so I can take a look

    Beetles are my absolute favorite bugs. I know butterflies get all the love, but I find beetles beautiful. Good news is that's a predatory species, eating less desirable things in your yard. That said, here in the west, the painted ladies have gone freaking insane this year. (video is for California, but going on here in Utah too)

    The invention of stucco seems to have introduced breeding grounds for all true bugs, allowing them to overwinter and emerge earlier.

    Afraid I was much more interested in the bugs at the time...and there was so much bee activity my daughter was afraid of the house, so, no pics. This is a sweat bee that preferred to come to the russians. Huntsman (more commonly known as daddy long legs, but NOT a spider, and not to be confused with the huntsman spider) Longhorned bees would be sleeping on the sunflowers every night/morning until they warmed up in the sun.

    I made a sunflower house for my daughter out of the russian giant ones a few years back. They seemed much more hardy and not as big as the mammoth, and attracted some different bees, which I found interesting. Don't know if the seeds are any good.

    Wow, that's going to be a lot of net... So...the only weakness I see to your plan is any that are already in the soil. I'm only vaguely aware of the control means, but I presume it similar to squash bugs where you'd normally burn vines, disc the field late in the fall to disturb the pupa, and till it before last frost to destroy even more. And you pretty much necessitate hand pollinating, but that's not as much a concern for giants.

    So, what is going on with the enclosure? What are you trying to accomplish? Kinda crazy how much they've grown already! So, my Big Moose seeds come coated...I've never experienced that before, looked like a pink sealed bag over each one. Not knowing how they would react to my preferred baggy method, I just plunked them into pots this year. 9 Moose, 8 Early Giants, and 2 each of Jill be Little, Casperita, and a Blaze mini I don't remember buying or what it looks like?

    Ditto with me on the french varieties. I did manage to get some OK results when planting them inside a corn patch, so the corn provided shade. I figure it's just too hot here for them in the summer. Though I did have that one gorgeous musquee the slugs ate...I might have to try that again some day. ooojen, that is quite the list! I don't think we had enough room for all that when I was working the farm!

    Tilled in the 'green manure' cover crop yesterday, coupled with all the composting of the leaves and pumpkins last year, I can tell the garden is in MUCH better shape than last year, but still nowhere near where it was prior to all the remodeling. I'd focused on getting 50% of it back in shape this year, and it looks like that's mostly worked as planned. Getting a load of composted turkey manure this weekend. Starting the pumpkin seeds this weekend as well. Sunflowers have sprouted...

    I have a pair of ION block rockers that pair to each other. (you'd pair one to the other speaker, then one to your phone/source) Used to be perfect for my yard, one in front, one in back. After our house expansion though, that distance is too great for bluetooth, so I run them individually. Could have sworn I saw a 4 pack of wireless/chargeable speakers at a greater image location around the same time.
