I should be cutting out the crooked cucumbers but I feel I don't need them straight no pealing of
Nutrient's. This fall's crop should be good I wil be starting seeds at the end of month.
Swallowtail came to thank my wife the other day. It followed her and kept coming up to her face. I have a lot of Butterfly's that are showing up.
They love the host plants we started. I have two Monarch catapillars cleaning off a plant seems like it is taking them over three weeks of eating plants.

My pepper plants can't take the heat they love it indoors for some reason with these plants. I call them my wimps. They like the cool air inside the house.
Tomato's are showing flowers. Cucumber plants are getting close to branching out in another week.
I trim all the bottom leafs to get a larger plant. I will slow down on cutting them back.
These plants are taking 120 degree heat in the Butterfly House.
I'm also going to add some other pictures in this blog.
Watermellon, Eggplant, Butterfly's and birds.
I may graft them together I wonder what will happen.
at a yard sale for $5. I cleaned it up to hold more Hydro mix for plants for the drip system. I cover the top with hurricane panels. One minute timer is used to cycle on at different times of the day, I didn't close these bags on top area this time. Cucumbers are in perlite plastic 5 gallon bags I close the the side holes with duck tape.
I will eventually stop this procedure and use Dutch buckets in future or use my Homer Buckets.
One timer for fan to cool.
These are all my lovely lady plants no bees needed.
Birds are safe but the squirrels think its a joke.
They still love the shock I told them look out next time you will get burned.
I will add another ground wire to increase the shock they think its funny!
If that doesn't work I will buy a larger stronger unit.
She hopped right on my finger I noticed her life was coming to and end.
Her wings were deforming. It was like she was saying thanks for all the
wonderful host plants my wife and I planted this year.
We spray none of our plants or yard with pesticides.
This was our first watermellon next year I will grow more.
Soon he will get an electric fence as well. The rabbits don't touch the garden.
They just eat on the ground with the birds and wait for animal cracker cookies.
