Just reading on MSN that there were or are 50 fires burning in Washington. Maye that is where my head ache is coming from. The dang wind is blowing out there too sending the fires in all directions they said. I should get out there and water the plants I guess since they will be drying out from the wind too.

Maybe I was just being allowed to enjoy my clean car. I washed all the bird poop and dirt off just before coming home at 10ish. That was a miracle as I never wash my car but it was getting really embarrassing. Even all the old tree goop on top of the car from the pineish tree that fell at the old house came off! Woo hoo. Maybe some year I will get around to cleaning the inside out again. I could plant seeds in there and just add water. Since I'm always packing yard tools, vacuum, dragging plants/dirt, potting soil etc. home, thrift store stuff, and and and it is always a mess.

The garlic chives will be blooming soon so hope they bring bees around. Last night was weird only saw one bug hit the car on the way home from Tri-cities. There weren't any out here either around 11ish while unloading the car. Don't know if the pesticides, smoke from all the fires, or just too hot to come out.

We  have crickets that chirp at night here. Crickets eat your food too but they are long, actually we have a baby version around here too barley an inch long or smaller. Maybe it is baby season.He said it is a beetle which I thought my weevil was til I found out other wise.

Yes, Fats cut Asparagus off at ground level , let them grow up again and then cut again, the same as if you where harvesting to eat. It takes a few years for the shoots to thicken and be juicy in stead of thin and vine like. Good luck. Not sure about what bugs you have in the US. In late summer, Autumn in Aus we have a stinking black cricket about 6cm long, that seems to come up out of the dry cracks of the ground. They swarm around street lights at night and then try to hide in the dark during the day. They die off after we get good late Autumn rain. With the nights still really warm and windows open they keep you awake with their chirping.

Fats are you sure you have beetles or are they root weevils? Nasty little hard shelled black  or brown bugs that eat everything in sight.They come out at night to feed. If so squish squish squish. I had them at the last house killed like 200 of them in a 10ft area.

Keryn, do you cut them at the base? I think the beetles are getting to them. Those pesky things have done major damage to other plants :(

"Our growing season started about 3 weeks ago, I would expect to get days over 30c  or 85f in October. Oteospermum is native to Africa, when stops flowering in mid summer I will cut it back."

"Your osteopermum look so lovely planted en mass. I can barely keep them blooming here. The fence finished just in time for everything to start climbing on it. Bravo! How many weeks of spring do you get before summer hits? "
