We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
Went out to get cuttings this morning off my maypop passi & lo & behold the Gulf Fritillary caterpillars are munching it! They only go for the following types of passiflora - P. Incarnata,P.Foetidu & P. Lutea (hope I spelled those right) & if you've never had them before they will munch mostly the top of your plant & should be off it in about a month. Mine got munched so bad last year I thought I lose it but it rebounded & put off the prettiest show till 1st freeze (vines were over 15' long)plus I had probably 100 of them flittering around eating pollen off the blooms for about 2 weeks after that(also found out how butterflies do it - almost busted a gut laughing when my nieghbor's 6 yr old son saw them & started yelling to his mom that "The butterflies are fighting" & she almost died trying to explain what the butterflies where really doing!) . Don't know how to get rid of them & really don't want to - they grow into gorgeous monarch looking butterflies but thought I'd put out the warning that they are here again if you go out & find your lovely vine half - munched & wondering what ate it. Happy Gardening to y'all from N texas
