My daily dose of Abundant Permaculture published on  Aug 25, 2016, during harvest activities.

My garden had several jungle areas this year.  Lazy me.  

Comment by Randall Smith on Wednesday
Joan, the sweat bee article was rather useless (but thanks anyway). I'm amazed there's nothing out in internet land that answers the question.
As for my sunflower photo, I'm actually ashamed of that area of my garden. It's sort of a "catch-all" spot where my compost pile is, next to the "covered deck" in the picture. That corn is popcorn that barely germinated.
Every garden (except Don's) has to have a "jungle area", and that's mine!
Comment by Idaho Spud on Wednesday

Don, I'm like Joan.  I save many of your photos in my beautiful scenery folder.  

Comment by Joan Denoo on Tuesday

Don, your shot across the lawn to the mountains will make an excellent album. I save your photos for my benefit and pleasure. Excellent!

Daniel, a thorny perimeter of brambles around the outside, a tall stand of holly inside that or something prickly. Then your fruit trees and your vegetable garden should be protected from the roving bands of immigrants. Put up a massive gate as the only entrance to your Garden of Eat'n, and they should adequately keep you safe. A gaggle of geese could act as watch fowl, maybe a llama or two to spit and bite. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on Tuesday

Spud, I think you are probably right. Let's hope the city gardeners don't use a lot of toxic chemicals. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on Tuesday

There do seem to be almost as many natural pollinators in my garden as honey bees.

The nearest agriculture areas start about 3 miles from me.  With a limit of 4 miles to find flowers, I still guess that most of my bees come from places in the city.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Tuesday

Spud, my guess is, with the 4,000+ elevation, the Snake River nearby and all the agriculture that grows near you, that you have a natural pollinator population plus the bees brought in for the farms. 

The bee loss appears to be an awful experience and I hope many hives were brought in to catch some of the loose bees. The article said some bees found hives. I wonder what caused the crashes? 

The drone photos perfectly suited for this task performed beautifully. I wonder where one gets a camera on a drone? 

Comment by Idaho Spud on Tuesday

I found that article while trying to find where all the pollinators in my garden were coming from.  I couldn't find out, but there must be hives in pocatello.

Comment by Idaho Spud on Tuesday

Joan, thanks for the Idaho Bee guide.  It's a coincident that I was just getting ready to post a sad story about several trucks full of bees crashing and killing millions of bees close to my home.  It was a year ago, but I just learned of it.  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3232745/Millions-bees-wreak...
