F those things. By the way i used Eight dust and eliminated many squarsh bugs and Japanese beetles. Also used yellow sticky sheets to catch a bunch of little jerkoffs. Pest problem appears to have been abated, however it seems like one of my National Pickling cuke plants may be a casualty to bacterial wilt. We shall see.

I one upped your Sevin dust brah
blossom end rot has ravaged my tomatoes. What can ya do, rain, dry, rain... It will do it.

Speaking of dry. Does anyone here collect rain water? Is there a way to do it that doesn't make your house look like you're a tree hugging tard?
My parents put gutters on their shed that empty into a rain barrel on the side. It’s pretty hidden and works pretty well.

The wings look too small to lift that big *****.

I had a couple initial thoughts but the photos don’t play out after some googling.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squash_vine_borer
The squash vine borer is a diurnal species of sesiid moth. It is native to North America. The moth is often mistaken for a bee or wasp because of its movements, and the bright orange hindleg scales. The females typically lay their eggs at the base of leaf stalks, and the caterpillars develop and feed inside the stalk, eventually killing the leaf. They soon migrate to the main stem, and with enough feeding damage to the stem, the entire plant may die. For this reason, it is considered a pest that attacks cultivated varieties of squash.

Speaking of dry. Does anyone here collect rain water? Is there a way to do it that doesn't make your house look like you're a tree hugging tard?
A few years ago I was gung ho on building a rain collection system and an aquaponic garden. I realized the cost of the water collection system will never be recouped due to the low cost of tap water.

tldr; no matter what, if you install a rain barrel you’re a tree hugging hippie. Not that there’s anything wrong with that

I think you can combat the tree hugging hippie energy by painting a Confederate flag on it.

Unless you don't have city water, which might actually be the case for Mac if he's still way out in Fayettenam

:lol: my thoughts too

Honestly my only reason for doing it is because I have such low water flow and pressure and could run a sprinkler with my system for an extended period of time (after I hook up a pump to my barrel).

I have one for my shed because I hate to just have it shed water onto the ground. It’s useful for watering pots and stuff with a watering can but not big watering type things

At my old house, I had to reconfigure my gutters to the back of my house, so I built this system where the water from half of my roof would go into a rain barrel. Then I had an overflow pipe at the top of my rain barrel that I dug underground for about 15 feet to a rain garden

The rain garden was really nice. You just need to make sure you plant the right plants that can handle pooled water for awhile. I had blazing stars and cardinal flowers in there that did really well

Oh, and I also added a pipe to the bottom portion of the rain barrel with a valve. If the rain garden ever seemed dry, I would just open up the valve and let the barrel drain into the rain garden.

I was pretty (and still) proud of myself as you can probably tell

Central Valley California is where most of the produce you eat comes from. So yes, it’s a good thing.
