My bird house gourds are incredibly huge and flowering wonderfully... but I am not seeing any gourds. I am questioning if the aphids as of now are the problem. My gourds are turning yellow in some areas and in those areas the leaves are overwhelmed with them..
I figured that it has come down to having to purchase Neem oil. I have never used this before and and I think that it is organic buttt.. I also haven't purchased it yet... I keep using the soap water spray, but it isn't working...... (hello! It is the BIRD HOUSE GOURDS, that are in trouble...) I don't know what to doooo!!!
So, Has anyone used this, and do you know what I could be in for, if I DO????
BASIL, BASIL EVERYWHERE!!!
I can't believe my basil plants, they are everywhere, and big and abundant and happy.. I can't believe how much I have... ha-ha-ha...

A NEW BATTLE
I have a new battle, and here is who it is....
This is a couple of woodpeckers and the battle is who will or can get to the Humming bird feeders without being seen, but the thing is I always see them and I try to get a pictures of them but they know... Are they that good at knowing???
So this has been going on for more than I don't know two or three years... This couple makes the loudest noise... ever.... Like they are proud that they arrived at the feeder before you ever did.... They seem a bit smug and have an, "I did it before you" attitude.
Look whose peeking in to my Home!!!!
I have a brand new visitor look who is hanging over my arcadia doors....
|Daddy long legs, maybe!!!|
Well only this one and I don't think he is to much of a bother, so he can stay as long as it's there and not trying to come inside.... ishhhh.
My new Pumpkins in progress....
Sigh, I know, I was hoping for these to be ready for Halloween, but well, beggars can't be choosers right?
So here they are beautiful and happy and growing on there way...
|September 16, new arrival but this is the third day.|
|and the other one for the 3rd day too...|
