I agree Joan.  I've always thought that nature looks more beautiful than the finest painting, sculpture, or any man-made object.

Don, your vegetables look more beautiful than the finest painting.

And I didn't show my 4 pots with lots of watermelon & muskmelon seeds in them that had zero plants show-up.

I think I fried them.  It appears that even heat-loving watermelon won't germinate when someone forgets to open the lid to his little greenhouse, and temperatures rise to 150° F.

It is relative Randall - and I only showed you the good side of my 5 by 3 metres garden.

Envy, envy, envy! Those apricots, Spud! I got a measly one (1) off two trees. My nectarines are all wormy. And all the other garden photos make me jealous. But, like I always say, everything is relative--most people are envious of my yard and garden.

Spud, you can talk science here, all you want!  It's my favorite topic too.

Don, I wish I could grow better cabbages.  Here the cabbage flies and/or slugs have a field day.  I'm getting some collard greens now, but far from pretty.

Not that I"m complaining.  Harvested my first 2 figs today!  I've been checking the trees every day.  Sweet as honey.

O, of course! I never see those things here.

Plinius, the spiral around my apricot is a soaker hose.  The best way I've yet found to water it.

Let us note with serious concern that insects worldwide have been on the decline . . .

Now that you mention it, I haven't seen the white butterflies in years! Koolwitje is their name here: cabbage white.

What are you doing with the spiral around your apricot?

That looks very edible, Don!
