Thanks. I way over planted on Onions. Over 300 I think.  Very Happy  We'll give away a lot of them.  I agree, the pepper plants look healthy but their not producing like they did last year. I suspect they may have had a slight overdose of Nitrogen.

I'm not at all happy with my tomatoes. Some of them are turning brown and producing golf ball size fruit. Also having a huge problem with blossom end rot on both tomatoes and peppers. I try to water on a regular basis and give them extra calcium. 

I'm trying not to complain though. All in all, it's been a pretty decent season so far considering all the heat we've had.
My water bill has gone up about $20 a month with all this heat and not much rain.

Nice plants, Mr. Booker!  Here it is the same.  Super cold/wet/hot/repeat.

Not sure what is going on out there.  Some peppers have set fruits, no cukes or pole beans.  Squahand melons have minis on here.  Just a super strange summer?

I'm married to a Missourian so I learned to drop a syllable, or add one, transpose R's and vowels, so I am bi-lingual.

Just feed them for a couple days without setting the trap. If they eat the food, then set the traps. Happy trapping.
