    Tomato hornworm damage... but no worm

    And look "above" the poop too, since well... you know... gravity and all. lol Those little devils are masters at hiding. And my chickens (who eat everything) have to debate with themselves for a moment before deciding that the hornworms are edible. I can't really see a tiny wild bird doing...

    Question on watering

    My garden is taking a beating right now with the 96* temps and no rain for weeks. I bought a cheap sprinkler timer from the big blue oversized store (I think it was $10-$12). I turn it on to run for half an hour or so before I leave the house in the mornings. Works like a charm.

    I ran across a great deal on tomatoes at Lowe's just now...

    I have talked myself into going back today and picking some up since I have two of my heirloom plants that are clearly going to be a bust. I'll keep you all informed. :D

    Flowers on Zucchini!

    Now I assume that I can't just go all King Herod on all the squash flowers right? Surely, my baby squash need some daddy flowers to go with the mommy flowers.
