    Yes, they are beautiful, when not dug up by the assistant gardener... I haven't had that type before here, but they are very common and Castor has never even looked at them before. I suspect we need to trust Castor who claims it's the squirrel's fault

    Great to hear about your tomatoes! How big are they now? And yes, taking them out for a few hours per day before they have adjusted before planting them outdoors. Not sure about sun or shade for the hardening. Many plants do much better in the shade (less of a shock, I suppose) so probably that's better. I have mine in my little green house but recently it's been so cold here that they haven't grown much.

    @cefe13 usually dogs don’t dig only on a specific planet. IMO I’m sure has to do with the squirrel smell. I would be curious if you buy a new one n plant it without the squirrel smell, see what Castor does.
    @sisters3 great looking plants. Yes put them outside to thicken plants. You can start in the shade for an hour n move slowly to the sun as your temperatures are very hot compared to @cefe13 and I.

    I have flowers growing on my zucchini’s. A bit too fast as the plant isn’t that big to support a zucchini. Geez Duke’s going to be happy. No need to go pick zucchini’s outside as they’re inside lol...

    Tomatoes are tall along with the peppers.

    Great pics! Are the peppers bell peppers or chili pepper? Do you grow them outdoors in an ordinary flower bed or do you keep them in the pots? Last year I tried chili outdoors in a raised flower bed and it didn't do very well so I'm thinking of keeping it in my greenhouse this year. Any thoughts?

    Re the squirrel, the problem is that he is here every day but I might try with a new plant. Glad to hear you and @sisters3 agree with Castor
