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

That's great! Such a pretty picture.

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.

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.

Thank you Barbara, will look at that link. I've been trying to find info too, & have run across used coffee grounds, which we have plenty of, & equal parts flour & baking soda.

Patricia, I recently ran across this article about cut worms. I found it helpful with some really practical ways of dealing with them.  Maybe it will help you.
