Hi Wisteria, yes you are right. Bottle Gourd.

A question if you can help "The one in the picture about looks pretty and nice. But some of them are damaged at the neck or rather shrunken/shrivelled at the neck. The rest of the gourd looks perfectly fine." Any reason?

Even some cucumbers seem to be having the same problem.

Insect attack?

Check the neck of the gourd to see if it has been bitten by fruit flies. As for cucumber, deformed shape in cucumber is mostly due to improper pollination or partial pollination.

Hi, Hup.

Yes, it is edible as a vegetable.

My mom steams it with a spice mix and rice flour.

After returning from my holiday a few days earlier, suddenly became lazy to post.

Waging a non-stop war with ants in the garden.

Their population is under control, nevertheless need to constantly attack them and knock them out.

Seriously, I do not believe in any benefits of having ants in my garden.

I have seen guavas developing on my guava trees and i need to ensure that i get the better of ants this time.

Lost a huge harvest to them last year.

What to do with him, now that he has been caught.

Ate up the watermelons, and left the empty shells behind.

So, off we got this from Home Depot and the very first night, he was captured.

No other nocturnal visitors since.

We got several messages asking us not to kill.

But guess what?

Nobody offered to volunteer to pick it up/send it elsewhere.

Everybody only said "You cannot kill. Dun kill. Its illegal".

"Houston, we've got a problem"

You know why because you announced it. Surely they will tell you not to kill it. Perhaps it's really illegal.

What I recommend is to take it for long drive and let it go somewhere. Oh ya, best to blindfold it before the ride.

Hope it works.

Hey Ah Pek, if the animal is still alive, you can try ACRES's wildlife rescue hotline. They'll come down to collect the animal from you for free, though they take donations as well.

Posting their link here in case anyone else needs help:

Hi there

I'm almost certain there are no local raccoons. And if I'm right I can only think it's the screens we stare at 24/7 that makes us unaware of our surroundings.

Cheers

ACRES is in Spore.

The incident occurred in Houston.

Do you have a contact for Houston?

Cute looking. Best to put it back to its natural habitat.

Yes we gave up!

Nature wins. :notworthy:/>

Its too troublesome to capture them and then transport them to the woods to release them.

So we decided, let them come and eat all the fruits they want!

Atleast I get my free time (even though i may not get to eat the fruits)
