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.

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!

Beautiful Don.  I'm envious.

Many years ago, when I lived close to the countryside, I was always fighting the offspring of the white butterflies, that were munching on my brassicas.  A few years ago, in town, I tried brassicas again.  I saw quite a few white butterflies landing on them, but no offspring, so no munching.  Don't know why.

And our salad bowl runneth over . . .

At our elevation (1700 ft.) here in northern Vermont, and with plenty of air circulation, I seldom have much trouble with insects.  Here are my red cabbages, with arugula as companions, and my broccolis and Brussels sprouts, all unmolested so far . . .
