Best trees for caterpillars and such?

I'm trying to create a more native-plants and animal friendly lawn and I have space for several more trees. I already want a burr oak. I have pine, arborvitae, red maple, sugar maple, aronia, and an elm.

Blooms but no squash

I have numerous squash plants. Zucchini, yellow crookneck, pumpkins, gourds, Etc.
There are plenty of blooms on all of the plants, but only the gourds are setting fruit.
I have tried manually fertilizing them with a Q-tip, complete with making buzzing noises like a bee LOL, but to no avail.
They are getting plenty of sun and water, the plants themselves are extremely healthy, as are all of the blooms.
Can you help? Thanks, Kirk

If storing carrots and beets in an underground root cellar at 35 degrees with 85-90% humidity is it necessary to pack the roots in damp sand or sawdust? (can the roots be stored loosley in bins without such insulation?) Are pine shavings (such as those sold in bales for animal bedding) safe to to use? (does the pine impart any flavor to the stored crop?)

Wintering Arbor Vitae cuttings

Hi. I have planted a few Arbor Vitae cuttings,. Some of them must be taking root because they have not gone brown or faded or anything.
I am wondering what I should do with them when winter comes.
Currently I still have a number of them in several containers. When would I know to pot them in individual containers if I should do that yet this year at all? I probably started them a month ago.
They are currently located where they only get a little bit of morning sunlight. Should I gradually move them to where they would get more sunlight now that I think they are starting to root?
Thanks for any help you can give me, Kirk

Welcoming the morning sun

This flower was wide open and facing the morning sun, but as the sun moved higher in the sky and became hot the flowers closed up.
This has very coarse slender leaves coming from the base of the flower stem.
the leaves twist in random directions.
Not sure how well you may be able to make out the leaves in the picture.

Can you help me to identify this flower?

Thanks,
Greg
