    *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.

    Grunge it up first. Paint it gun metal gray or a like color. Cover the padded parts with dirty sheets. Agree that a mannequin of sorts would look cool. I'd have the thing in full recline position and a mad scientist actor next to it. Hell, use a live actor in place of the mannequin and let him and the doctor play off the crowd with some dialogue, etc...

    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...

    I love the movement - the jaw and the head turning is really great! I didn't notice the actual coffin creeping open until a second view tho! :D Great looking setup - would love to see it with your other skelly like you're planning and all lit up. :cool:

    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) https://www.nbcnews.com/video/annual-migration-of-painted-lady-butterflies-reaches-southern-california-1457087043556

    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.

    Hi Unorthodox! As always, love your input and ideas on all these threads. I was looking at your pic from 2010 where you carved out the bottom of pumpkin and hung from what looks like a pvc. How did you hook up the light and keep the pumpkin secure? Thanks in advance. If you have any links/pics of it, please send them my way!

    Hey - love the new avatar. When I saw that scene, I immediately thought "There's an animated gif I could get a lot of use out of." But I'll likely never get to it. Nice job!

    Quick couple of questions..I noticed on your blog that you bought a webcaster gun. Fright props has them on sale for $37-do you think it's worth the money? Also, can you use regular glue sticks or is their stuff specifically formulated?
    Thanks for your time
