Re: Rain

Please come to SE Texas! We have not had rain in weeks! We are in a severe drought. I'm envious of anyone with rain.

Re: Homegrown / Homemade: Squash

The video is fine except there are some important details about squash pollination that were left out. The female squash blossom is only receptive in the morning when she is open. Once the female squash blossom closes later in the day, pollination cannot successfully occur. Even if you tear open the blossom to brush the stigma with pollen, it will not take. So get out there early when the female squash blossom is open and act like a bee.
