Joan, thanks for discussing Garden's Alive.  I haven't used their products and will look into them.

Barbara, thanks for posting on ways to frustrate cutworms.  They haven't plagued me but they to affect others here, as noted in their posts.

 

Patricia, your greenhouse is inspiring and empowering!

Joan, I haven't ordered anything from Gardens Alive for awhile. I'm using my local greenhouse. But their Bt stuff used to work. Neem, too (I think).

Daniel, good "Indian" story! And great bee photo.

Patricia, remember that old song, "It's nice to have a man around the house"? I'm going to look up the lyrics right now.

Patricia, you forgot to mention gawd having a back back as well.

Very nice bee photo Daniel.

Barbara, excellent piece on cutworms, and an interesting story as well.

Patricia, the flowers are Chinese chives. Bees love them. Fortunately, with modern cameras having erasable memories, I can take 20 pics hoping one will come out OK. I just wait for them to land on a flower I already focused on then snap the pic.

Patricia, I've used the cut tin cans before with good results. Make sure you get them into the ground deep enough.

Patricia, that looks to me like a good man. 

Two bee?  or Not two bee?

Randall, Battleground WA has an ironic name.  The military officer here was tasked with rounding up local Native Americans who had left with understandable fear of persecution.  It was expected he would go to war, but instead he negotiated with them and there was a peaceful conclusion.  The local white people were annoyed about that, and ironically named the area Battleground because there was no battle.  They ridiculed him by running some women's red underwear up a flagpole.  Which was flown proudly.

 

My details may be a bit off, but that's the general idea. 

 

It's a mild climate.  I never imagined growing some of the garden plants that do well here.  The most infamous local resident is skater Tonya Harding.
