"Can some Texan ID this plant for me.  A friend found it near Austin, TX.  I know it's a cucurbic, but I'm lost after that.  Thanks. "

"@Mary, Re:  Confed. Rose.  You're probably right.  It may have branched more if you had.  Esp. if it didn't die back last winter.  I have a couple of "rock rose" plants that weren't blooming much. I…"

"We've seen very few.  A few weeks ago we had 4 of late I'm seeing one of two now and then and we have 4 feeders and multiple flowers hummers are supposed to love.  Maybe it's the heat.  "

Hy Charlie....love your "greenhouse". I am a passionate veggie grower in Ireland....someone said my garden was like a Market Garden, but I only grow for us and family :)

I love getting dirt under my fingernails and being out and one with Mother Nature. I tried to beat HER this year, but SHE put me in my place..LOL!

Would you like to be friends here?

Kind Regards,

Catherine from Ireland

Great photos! Where in Tx. are you? I noticed your nice garden shed/greenhouse structure and I'm in the process of building one. What all do you have going on in there? Composting? Any suggestions?

Charlie - I saw your post saying gout was slowing you down - I only have gout in 1 toe butinstead of the prescription medicine (which gave me dry mouth) I am taking a time release black cherry extract tablet and it is working great!  Just wondered if you had tried cherry extract , or tablets or pure juice or dried cherries!
